    Great recipe! I didn't bother weighing up ingredients but used one aubergine for 3 medium tomatoes, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 chilli, 3 heaped tablespoons kalamata olives, 1 tablespoon capers, 2 tablespoons tomato pasatta and it turned out great!

    I LOVED this! Followed the directions except I didn't have any capers or dried red chili, and I used part of a red bell pepper. Tasted great, and DH says I'm going to make it again. Thanks for this fantastic recipe!
