Ok CHIA, you get a standing ovation for this one. This made the whole house smell wonderful and the scent lingered for a few hours afterwards, making everyone hungry for more!

This was really good. It is the second version I have made on Zaar. I like to make rattatoulie becuse I can eat it on my diet. I made simple roast chicken and ate this as a topping along side of it. The fresh herbs really made a big difference in adding flavor to this dish.

What an marvelous way to serve your summer garden veggies! This dish would be great served over rice or perhaps along side a plate of veal parmesan! This is an excellent dish to really get the cook involved in the preparation! This is so much fun to prepare! I made exactly as recommended by chia. We enjoyed our Ratatouille very much, Chia! Thank you for posting!
