This is a recipe that I almost decided not to work on. I served ratatouille in my restaurant because it was made by an old hippie that worked as a prep cook. I had his recipe and, as with most vegetarian dishes, it was full of fat (and not very good fat I might add). I am so glad that I worked on it. The key is the highest quality fresh mozzarella you can find. Fresh herbs are best, but you can use dried oregano, thyme, and tarragon. The basil really should be fresh.
Here's the recipe for Ratatouiille without the pictures. You can print the recipe by clicking the print icon at the top of the right-hand column. Be sure to turn off any popup blockers, as it opens in a new window.
First, assemble the ingredients.
Top, left to right: oregano, eggplant, onion, canned tomatoes. Second row: thyme, zucchini, fresh mozzarella, green bell pepper. Below zucchini: garlic. Third row: tarragon, olive oil, tomato paste. Bottom row: wine, salt, fresh basil.
