Peperonata Calabrese

This is a truly scrummy side dish which is super easy to make and goes with absolutely everything.  The perfect accompaniment to sausages, it’s shocking how much of this I can eat!!! Try it for yourself and you’ll see what I mean!


You wìll need:

3 peppers (1 green, 1 yellow, 1 red)

1 large tropea onion

2 courgettes (zucchini for my American friends)

1 aubergine (eggplant)

4 decent sized potatoes

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper


  • Wash and chop all veggies into bite sized-chunks, removing seeds from peppers
  • In a frying pan, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil and when hot add all vegetables apart from the onion.
  • Fry on a very low flame, adding extra olive oil when needed, until soft and lightly browned.
  • Finally add onion and cook until softened.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with a smile, eat whilst trying not to think of the calories. yum yum.
