    1. Heat the oil and butter in a pan over low heat. Cook the onions and peppers, covered, until tender, about 15 minutes. Stir or shake the contents of the pan occasionally, taking care not to allow the onion and peppers to brown.
    2. Add the aubergine and courgette to the pan, cover, and cook gently for an additional 30 minutes, or until soft.
    3. Add the tomatoes to the pan, season with salt and pepper; cook for an additional 15 minutes.

    Cook's note

    To peel the tomatoes, nick the skins and place in a mixing basin; cover with boiling water and allow to stand for 1 minutes. Drain and peel away the skins.
