Ratatouille

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by HEP MEP

This is another recipe I made a lot before The-Girl-Who-Hates-Vegetables joined us. One of our favotite summer dinners with a nice hunk of bread. I also added some tomato paste to this to reduce the acidity. Came from We're Cooking Now - an old cooking show circa 1985.

OK, I loved how this turned out. But that was only after I added salt (1 1/2 teaspoons) and ground coriander (1/2 teaspoon), upped the tomatoes (3 cups) and fresh basil (1/4 cup), and looked at a couple other recipes to figure out how much olive oil to use (1/3 cup). I think this would have been a bit bland as written. It was great with some changes, though. Thanks for the basic recipe!
