A nice hearty Italian stew, perfect for a cold night. Serve with a green salad and crusty bread for a meal, or serve small helpings as a starter. When using dried rosemary I always give it a beating with the mortar and pestle so the pieces are smaller and not so twig-like when eating. If you don't feel like roasting your own red and yellow peppers, feel free to substitute 2 6-oz. jars of roasted red peppers. You'll be missing the yellow, but it will be tasty.

Sorry Linorana, the stars disappeared! I liked this very much, and as with many dishes, is better the second day. Delicious with fresh grated parmesan.
