Description Edit

This southern French dish is tough to pronounce (ra-tuh-TOO-ee) and even tougher to resist. Typically ratatouille combines eggplant, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, zucchini, garlic and herbs stewed together. This ratatouille is spiced with cinnamon, paprika and basil, among other seasonings.
