Ratatouille is as much fun to make as it is to eat and to say.This is such a simple dish I don’t know why I don’t see it more often.
I've been experimenting with baking petite fours today so I needed an easy dinner that I knew was going to turn out well with very little tending to.
I love the taste of the roasted vegetables and I like this change from the usual of root vegetables I roast. It is a great dish to make as summer ends and you find such a beautiful selection of eggplant and peppers.
