I actually really liked this. I was surprised because I really hated the idea of using canned soup in caponata but I was trying to clean out the pantry and had a can of it so decided to try it. It turned out great. I did not serve it as an appetizer, I think it would have been too runny for that. I did toss it with penne pasta and topped it with parmesan cheese and it was great! I did need to add some salt to it once it got on the pasta. Those that don't like the idea of using soup . . . I think this would be great with regular diced tomatoes, canned or fresh too. UPDATE: I have made this again-pureed it in the blender and used it as a pasta sauce-it was 5 stars! Topped with a bit of parmesan, it made a great pasta dish, with rave reviews all around! Healthy too! I will definitely make it again that way. To make the sauce, I did add a bit of sea salt and cut the water to only 1 cup. Everything else I kept the same as listed in the recipe except for pureeing it at the end of the cooking time. Soooo good!
