Eggplant Casserole

This dish is a fine delicacy that has a cajun quality. My recipe is most enjoyed as an entre, but can certainly be used as a Horsd'oeuvres with white wine and sourdough."

2 cups onions cut into ⅛ to ¼"-thick dice
1 cup celery cut into ¼"-thick dice
2 cups bell pepper cut into ¼"-thick dice
