Recipe by Juli Warfel Bitler
"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."

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!!
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!
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!
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!
Excellent dish!! My husband and I are doing a purification cleanse and I've been searching for vegetable dishes. This is by far our favorite dish of the week. The only thing I changed was that I peeled the eggplant because the skin can be chewy sometimes, I added sliced roma (plum) tomatoes, used fresh basil instead of thyme leaves because I didn't have any and omitted the cheese because we can't consume dairy during this purification. We sprinkled red pepper flakes on top along with some fresh parsley. We didn't miss the cheese. We served it over quinoa. We will definitely have this again long after the cleanse is over. Thank you for sharing!!
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!
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.
