In a medium sauce pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sweat the bell peppers, onion, garlic sun-dried tomatoes and fresh tomatoes.

Meanwhile, rub the rest of the oil evenly on the eggplant and on a parchment paper place in preheated 275°F oven for 3 minutes.

Roll the eggplant neatly and place back into the oven and let bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly golden.
 

To serve, spoon mixture on to a plate, then place rolled eggplant on top. Side of brown bread is recommended to dunk the sauce.
