3 For the vegetables, wash rosemary, shake dry and peel off the stem. Wash vegetables and pat dry. Cut eggplant into slices approx. 0.5 cm thick. Core the peppers and cut into strips about 3 cm wide. Marinate vegetables with oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Tightly layer alternately the sauce and vegetables in an ovenproof dish, sprinkle the mozzarella on top and bake on the middle rack for about 40 minutes.
