ratatouille's ratatouille


My husband spent many years living in the South of France and learned to make a mean ratatouille. There are a few versions, but one really just needs, garlic, onion, olive oil, eggplants, pepper, squash and zuchini and some herbs. Eating a diet which consists of good fats and veggies is part of eating a meditteranean diet which has many positive health benefits.
Do you prepare ratatouille?
You must try smitten kitchen's ratatouille's ratatouille. rat-tat-too-ee-for-you!
Enjoy with a piece of fresh fish and a glass of French wine.

Would you believe I've never even tasted ratatouille?! But looking at the picture makes me question what I'm waiting for.

LOVE your illustrations. I have one framed by my desk downstairs (the house) and another right by my upstairs desk (desk with tulip chandelier). They make me SO happy!!!

Darling as usual. I agree with Pretty Pink Tulips; your art just makes me happy.

Wishing my husband could make a signature dish...at least he knows how to slice a grapefruit and open a container of yogurt!!! Oh, and boil water. (ha, ha)

Thanks for the recipe! I'm off to copy it, since I have the veggies sitting on the counter. :) Enjoy! xo

i love ratatouille, but have never thought about making it at home. looks so fresh and delicious.... yes! making this before the summer ends... wish i would have seen it before we packed up from italy. would have been perfect for a night on the veranda.
