1/2 Photos of Fusilli in Ratatouille Sauce
Bert's Kitchen Witch's Note:
This hearty sauce is Creole-French, and although this recipe places it over pasta, rice could work as well. It was always a good way to get my children to eat eggplant when they were little. Presented with a green salad and crusty garlic bread, it's also a meal that I can serve my vegetarian friends.
