We’ve taken the hard work out of making caponata, the popular appetizer first created in Sicily. Marco Polo Homemade Eggplant Appetizer is a delicious blend of eggplant, onions, tomato paste, oil, herbs and spices. Often served on crostini or toast, this wonderful dish will add variety to a meze or Middle Eastern platter. For a light vegetarian meal or appetizer spread, enjoy with hummus, baba ganoosh, olives and warm pita. Or, mix into hot pasta with fresh mozzarella and basil for an easy, mouth-watering Pasta Alle Melenzana.
