The caponata you're referring to is basically a ratattouille right? If it is, then it wouldn't be any problem with making it into a sauce. You would just need to thin it out with some wine/pomodoro, and then adjust the seasoning. You can even saute some pancetta or bacon, then add the caponata and wine/pomodoro to create a nice pasta sauce.
