Disney's Ratatouille

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Lavender Lynn

The beautiful ratatouille served up in the movie by the same name. Long and narrow vegetables work best. Serve over a bed of brown rice, couscous, pasta or other starch, or with crusty bread."

So full of flavor I could barely stand it! Wonderful dish loved by the whole family. I made a few changes to taste: instead of bell peppers, I used roma tomatoes to match the width of the other veggies, and I sprinkled some thyme, basil and oregano along with salt and pepper over the top right before baking. I added some medium grain rice fried with italian sausage as a side dish and topped it all with parmesan cheese. There are NEVER leftovers when this dish is made :-)
