  6. I've never cooked Ratatouille before - heck I don't even think I've ever eaten it before - and tonight's dinner was awesome. I pulled apart a 1 pt WW string cheese and let it get melty through it and topped it off with some low fat sour cream. Awesome, awesome dinner. And TONS of leftovers! Thank you!!

    i just had to try this recipe. for zero points, i think it is pretty good. i had some fresh basil so i chopped up about a tablespoon and added it with the herbs. i added some parmesean cheese at the end as well and served it over some whole grain pasta. it is pretty filling and makes a ton. i will definitely make this again. Thanks!

  8. YUM! Sadly this is NOT zero points though. I just entered it into the Recipe Builder on the Weight Watchers site - so for future preparers of this recipe - Note that the POINTS PLUS value is 4 points per serving!! But awesome recipe! and 4 points is still an amazing dinner!!

  10. HOLY MOLY!!! This was AWESOME!!!! I added about 1/2 c of chcken stock and a big pinch of red pepper flakes. Otherwise, as is... absolutely fabulous!!! I received my first CSA (community supported agriculture) box yesterday and it had eggplant, onions and tomatoes in it. You can really taste the difference using fresh, local ingredients.. yummy and THANKS GINA!!!!

  12. Looks like there are white beans in there from the picture? Did you forget them in the recipe?

    1. That's really funny. I thought the same thing. I tried this and added a can of white beans...but I think I did something wrong - it was not good at all. I've tried a lot of Skinnytaste recipes and have loved every single one of them so far...so I'm guessing it was my fault.
