Serves 6

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 eggplant, (1-1 1/4 pounds), diced
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups prepared marinara sauce
  • 1 yellow or red bell pepper, diced

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Put a large pot of salted water on to boil.
