Peperonata is a vegetarian and a very tasty pepper stew. You can find the ingredients all year round. This allows you to prepare the Peperonata all throughout the year. You can have it warm in the colder months; and during the summer, you can use it as a topping for your toasted bread to make a delicious bruschetta.

The Peperonata is also good when served as sauce in the pasta and ideal as a side dish to delicate meats like chicken or turkey.
