Great article,so cute. I love this dish, so does my kids, not so much my Dear Hubby (meat and more meat) so i do not make it often any more the kids are grown and moved out. Hard to do for one person i think. But You all should try this it is delish.
While grocery shopping for ingredients, my husband and I ran into a friend. We told her if she was not busy tomorrow, she could drop by for Ratatouille. She replied, "oh I haven't seen it yet, but I'd like to" We all had a good laugh as we explained that we weren't going to watch it, we were going to eat it.
It would be OK for me personally but I dont care for and am borderline allergic to garlic.

I like that your son has taken ownership of cooking and recipe development - especially with vegetables. Way to go Nathan! Can't wait for the next one.
I was introduced to ratatouille in France during a summer heat wave. The mother would fix it in the morning when it was cool in the kitchen, let it chill then serve it at lunch. I do the same on hot summer days; brings back great memories! With a dish like this KISS works best (keep it simple and clean).
We've made a family tweaked version of baked ratatouille for years. We don't prefer eggplant, so we substitute spaghetti squash. We layer the ingredients in a 9X13 pan, seasoning each layer with garlic salt, parmesan cheese, italian herbs (or personal preference) and olive oil, if wanted. Make sure the tomatoes are on top, so they can get slightly crisped on the edges. It's a total WINNER of a meal!
I just roared with laughter. Not only did I share my recipe for Ratatouille on my blog just this morning, but I was sitting here at my desk this evening with a plateful when I logged on and saw your article staring me in the face. I plan to save your two thumbs up version for future reference. It sounds just as yummy as mine! :-)
