For last week’s family movie night, we decided to watch Ratatouille AND make ratatouille for dinner. It was my first time making it. My verdict: it’s tasty and healthy. You can’t beat that!
1 package ravioli or some kind of pasta (optional)
2 diced onions
5 cloves minced garlic
1 diced yellow pepper
1 diced red pepper
1 diced eggplant
1 diced zucchini
1 can crushed tomatoes (I used the basil, oregano, and garlic flavored kind)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
- Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add in olive oil, then onions and garlic; cook until the onions are tender. Add in peppers, and cook until the peppers are tender. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Remove and keep warm.
- Heat another pan over high heat, add in more olive oil and saute the zucchini until tender. Remove from pan and add to the pan with the onions and peppers mixture.
- Return the pan to high heat, add in the remaining olive oil and saute the eggplant until browned and softened. Add the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; add the onions, pepper, and zucchini mixture. Mix everything together well and continue to simmer for 3 minutes.
- Serve over cooked ravioli/pasta (follow cooking instructions) and then top with parmesan cheese.
