From Mario Batali in the cookbook, The Chew Food. Life. Fun. Mario says, "The French, with their ratatouille, may think they've cornered the market on fun words for a vegetable stew, but all that means is they have never heard of the dish called scafata. It's a traditional Friulian dish that the great Lidia Bastianich first made for me". Mario liked it so much, he tried it with summer vegetables and the following recipe was his, and now yours, reward. Enjoy!
