Caponata is a traditional Sicilian sweet-and-sour antipasto of cooked eggplant, typically served cold or at room temperature. The name caponatina, or "little caponata", reflects the small dice of the eggplant. This recipe is from my friend Gail's family, passed down from her Sicilian grandmother, Rosalia. Tender eggplant serves as a veritable flavor sponge, absorbing the tastes of sweet onion and tangy tomato sauce.
