Nice and light, but also a bit bland, especially considering the watery insipid tomatoes in the supermarkets. Simmered tinned tomatoes with some garlic and oregano work better.

I make this as an interesting side dish to simply roasted chicken thighs or similar. Its simple, colourful and delicious.

The flavour of the aubergine in this recipe was fantastic! I didn't have mozarella so used cheddar instead: gorgeous! I ended up eating 2 halves on my own (:o)
