Ratatouille - A Delicious Vegetable Dish
- 1 medium eggplant, cubed
1 large onion, chopped
2-3 small zucchini, halved and sliced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
16 oz. diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 medium red pepper, chopped
1 Tb. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
1/3 c. olive oil
1/8 tsp. ground thyme
Combine all ingredients in a casserole dish. Mix well to coat the vegetables with the oil and herbs. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours, stirring about every 1/2 hour. The vegetables cook down considerably so what looks like a large volume to begin with will look much smaller in the end.
Notes: You can try adding any vegetable you like such as carrots, yellow squash, or green pepper. Vary the amounts of vegetables to your taste. You can also substitute chopped fresh tomatoes for the canned ones. Most recipes call for fresh, but I dislike cutting fresh tomatoes.
The Bloggy Progressive Dinner continues today at The Finer Things in Life with main dish ideas. While ratatouille isn't a main dish, it can be a delicious part of the main course. Do you like ratatouille?
