    Steve this is for you and your new sponsor. Italy has allot of “soul food” it keeps a secret from the “mangia cakes” but we’ve given away plenty to the unsophisticated world like polenta, radicchio, risotto, etc. Now risking excommunication from the Italian fraternity I give you “PEPERONATA” for four. If this goes viral I’m a goner in Italy. Start with a LARGE saute pan with extra virgin (expensive) olive oil and keep it at low heat. Now don’t go and start watching television as you have to pay attention to your cooking on this. Cut up a couple of cloves of garlic and saute them until they get brownish then drop in a couple of large Spanish onions roughly chopped up. Put a cover on the pan and let the onions cook until they get 90% soft then throw in 4 roughly chopped large sweet peppers (orange yellow red (no green)) 1 roughly chopped medium size eggplant and 3 roughly chopped smaller size zucchini. Saute the whole thing until 75% soft then add a LARGE can of ITALIAN roughly chopped tomatoes. Add a flat table spoon of salt, a tea spoon of black pepper, a pinch of rosemary, a pinch of basil, (no oregano you mangia cakes are dangerous with oregano) a table spoon of honey, and squeeze a half lemon on top (don’t worry if the seeds drop in, no big deal). Let everything saute for a couple of hours and watch and stir to make sure nothing burns. This is all at low heat remember. When everything is soft and melts in your mouth you are ready for a tasty Italian secret, taste treat PEPERONATA. Enjoy you lucky macaci.
