Acadia's Ratatouille

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by AcadiaTwo

We love ratatouille! I usually have an abundance of zucchini and yellow squash in my garden, however, this year since we received so much rain the zucchini & squash crop was poor. So I have been force to buy my ingredients. For my family's taste, I omit the red pepper flakes and salt as the canned tomatoes have enough salt in them, however if you choose to use fresh tomatoes I would add the salt.

Delicious veggie recipe! I don't care for onion so left it out and used extra peppers instead. I liked the slight kick from the crushed red pepper flakes. I served this as a side dish but I think it would be great over pasta, rice, or as a topping for pizza. Thanks for posting this recipe!
