True story, my favorite Disney movie of all time is Ratatouille. I’ve watched it hundreds of times with Madison and it never gets old.  My version of the classic French dish is more like a casserole, similar to this Noodless Zucchini Lasagna, only without the ricotta and meat sauce.

Layers of eggplant, zucchini and squash are baked in a quick tomato sauce with bell peppers and herbs then topped with Havarti cheese. This is a great tasting meatless main dish.

How To Make Baked Ratatouille

I sliced the vegetables thin with my mandolin (please be careful when cutting) which speeds the prep time up, and grilled them on my grill pan to help dry out the vegetables so the end results won’t be watery which worked like a charm! This is especially great in the late summer, if you’re like me and have an over-abundance of veggies in my garden.

    Outstanding!   I agree with other reviews about the time to prep but it certainly didn’t take 2 1/2 hr to prepare, more like an hour of prep using a mandolin. It was definitely worth it!  

  2. Made this again for a gathering and it was a big hit. I also added roasted mushrooms as my eggplant not very big and had trouble finding a good one for some reason right now. At an event it many wanted the recipe. Will do again often. Great vegetarian option.
