Ratatouille my way
Sharing with Cook, Coupon, Work is so much fun, and I enjoy preparing a meal around the specials that our local and nationwide grocery stores have to offer.
Lots of vegetables and fruits on special and what a perfect opportunity to prepare a ratatouille. A medley of eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes and bell peppers, all of course blended with wine. Yummy!!
The original ratatouille requires green bell peppers. This is one vegetable that I am not thrilled to eat, therefore I substitute it with yellow and red bell peppers and really enjoyed the combination. Make sure that you correct the seasoning if using yellow or red peppers as they are a bit on the sweeter side. I used red wine because I did not have white wine on hand, but either is just fine.
Ratatouille is a perfect side dish to any fish , meat or chicken. We had pan seared chicken tights alongside.
