Preheat oven to 425°F.
Toss the eggplant, peppers and fennel with 3 tablespoons of the oil and roast in a single layer on a baking sheet for 15 minutes, stirring once. This will have to be done in 2 or 3 batches
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté the onions until translucent. Add garlic; cook another 2 minutes.
Add tomatoes with the sauce crushing by hand and then the rest of the ingredients. Simmer slowly for at least an hour tasting and adjusting as required.
