This sturdy casserole of eggplant, bell peppers, garlic, tomatoes, olives, capers and parsley can be assembled ahead of time, but dont sprinkle with bread crumbs until just before baking. Serve it as an entrée or in smaller portions as a side dish.
Ingredient Set Name:
- Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add eggplant, bell peppers and tomatoes. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
- Add parsley, olives, capers, herbs, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into an 11- by 7-inch baking dish. (If making ahead, allow casserole to cool completely, cover tightly and refrigerate until 30 minutes before serving.)
- Topping: In small bowl, combine all topping ingredients and mix well. Sprinkle casserole evenly with topping mixture. Bake, uncovered, until mixture is bubbly and top browned, about 30 minutes.
