As soon as we watched the movie with the cutest little rat, Remy, directing the making of ratatouille in the movie by the same name, my sweet little boy began asking for me to make ratatouille for him. Seriously. He was just a little squirt when the movie was released and we watched it, as we did with most movies he loved, over and over and over and over and over again. And each time it was over, he asked if we could have ratatouille for supper.

In the summer, I was happy to oblige his request as best I could. Sometimes, we might not have all of the colors of peppers on hand and other times I might not have fresh tomatoes. But, by in large, I’d pull together a colorful combination of so many of summer’s finest vegetables, slice them as thin as possible, artfully arrange them in a deep pie plate, mix together my dressing and drizzle over it and then let it roast in the oven for a while. The smells coming from the oven were always enough to let him know that once again, I couldn’t agree more about my love for ratatouille, too!

  1. This is stunning! So much colour, and it looks delicious!

  2. I had heard of Ratatouille before the movie but never made it or tried it. Just as your little boy wanted to have it we did too and I began making it. It is alot of trouble to slice and arrange the veggies but it sure is good! I spread about 1/2 cup of store bought marinara sauce on the bottom of the dish before arranging the veggies on top of it.

  3. I love all those ingredients and how beautiful the dish is. Pinning it!!

  4. This is right up my alley! So gorgeous!

  5. Such a pretty dish, very appealing and tasty. I wish I had your patience to make it look this nice.

  6. Makes me hungry!

  7. Have to make this! Makes me hungry!
