Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut each rabbit into six pieces. Season liberally with salt and pepper and dredge with flour. In a heavy-bottom casserole (6- to 8-quart), heat virgin oil until smoking. Add 4 pieces of rabbit and cook until golden brown, turning often (about 8 to 10 minutes). Remove pieces and repeat with four more pieces. Repeat again, setting rabbit aside.

Submerge rabbit pieces in vegetables and liquid and cover casserole with tight fitting lid or aluminum foil. Cook in oven for 2 hours, or until meat is falling off the bone.

Remove pan from oven and carefully remove rabbit pieces. Taste sauce and season with salt and pepper. Place rabbit pieces in center of serving dish, pour sauce over and serve accompanied by the Eggplant Partafoglio.

This recipe yields 6 servings as an entree.
