I LOVE Ratatouille - its one of my favorite things to make... and eat!
I would suggest cutting any dense vegetables (eggplant, sweet potato, pumpkin) into 1 inch cubes and baking them (with a light spray of olive oil in the bottom of the pan AND again on top of the vegies) for about 20-25 minutes before tossing in with the rest of the ingredients... this gives it a more wholesome earthy flavour - and makes sure that they're cooked through properly!
Hope that helps!
ps: I never salt or peel my eggplant - I find that the roasting also takes the bitterness out of it :o)
