"The beautiful ratatouille served up in the movie by the same name. Long and narrow vegetables work best. Serve over a bed of brown rice, couscous, pasta or other starch, or with crusty bread." — julz226

I loved this! My 6 year old daughter couldn't get enough of it.
The only changes made were 4 cloves of minced garlic instead of 1/4 cup, and I used Parmesan instead of Mascarpone cheese (I didn't put any cheese over mine and it was still wonderful!)
My veggies were sliced about 1/8" inch thick and 45 minutes was the perfect amount of time.
We served this over brown rice to make it more of a meal instead of a side.
We have also tried this with Ricotta which was quite tasty, but Parmesan is still our favorite. We also added thin slices of red onion and that was yummy as well.
Not sure how to rate this. We didn't love it as Ratatoulli but I blended it up and added tomato sauce I made from our garden tomatoes, let it simmer all afternoon and served it as sauce over spaghetti and the entire family LOVED it. "Best sauce ever mom"... don't tell the kids its the same we had for dinner last night!!
This was awesome!! I added a considerable amount more of extra virgin olive oil than asked for and brushed the top of the slices with it as well. great summer dish!
We loved this dish! I'm ten and I made this for my family. It was so easy to do that I would do it again every night!!!!! We did not tomato paste so we used a jar of pizza quick sauce which worked great!
I had never eaten ratatouille but after my daughter mentioned it I had to give it a try. I didn't do the round layering but WOW, I wasn't expecting such great mouth watering flavors! Thanks for sharing
Awesome awesome. I have 10 picky kids and trying to get them to try something new is sometimes a chore in itself. I was able to use Eggplant and Zucchini from our garden and i used that and the movie as the sell. And once they tried it. It was gone. Ones that refuse to eat vegetables were asking for seconds. I myself thought it was a very delicious dish and will definately be fixing it again. It will probably surpass the Eggplant Pamesan as one of my alltime favorites.
I was really pleased to find this recipe because the Disney movie "Ratatouille" is what inspired my interest. I didn't have tomato paste so I cooked down a can of diced tomatoes with roasted peppers. Everything else I followed the recipe to the letter. My husband groaned when I told him what I was cooking, but when I served it with andouille sausage and garlic toast - he loved it all!
Adjustments: Slice onion thin and sautee in olive oil (thank you, one reviewer). I used 2 small tomatoes and sliced them thin and used them instead of red pepper. Also omitted tomato paste, minced garlic and mascarpone cheese. Before layering sliced veggies, I tossed them in olive oil and salted them (except tomatoes).
After taking the dish out of the oven, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and freshly ground pepper.
Enjoy! My family loved it!
