Featured Recipe



  • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb Globe eggplant (ends removed, cubed into 1-inch pieces)
  • 2 cups diced yellow onion (about ½-inch pieces)
  • 1 each fennel bulb (diced into ½-inch pieces)
  • 2 oz celery (diced into ½-inch pieces)
  • 6 each mini sweet peppers (or 1 large red bell pepper)
  • 1 Tsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups Mutti® Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 1/4 Tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup green pitted olives (cut into rings)
  • 1/4 cup capers (rinsed and strained)
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • 10 fresh basil leaves (rolled and cut into ¼strands)


  1. In a deep frying pan, heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the eggplant and stir to coat with the oil. Continue to cook for another 10 minutes, making sure to stir frequently. At this point, the eggplant should have collapsed and appear slightly charred. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, drizzle in the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and add the onion, fennel, and celery. Sauté for about three minutes.
  3. Next, add in the mini sweet peppers and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the minced garlic and sauté for a further minute.
  4. Add the Mutti® Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce, red wine vinegar, sugar, salt and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium, uncovered, stirring frequently for about 9 minutes.
  5. Add the green olives and capers. Lower the heat to medium-low; stir in the pine nuts and half of the basil leaves to heat through.
  6. Remove from the heat and place onto a serving plate, garnish with the remaining basil leaves. Serve hot or cold as an appetizer on top of toasted bread, as a side dish or with pasta.
