  • 1 eggplant, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley

How To Make Ratatouille


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat the bottom and sides of a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil.


Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic until fragrant and golden brown. Add eggplant and parsley; cook and stir until eggplant is tender and soft, about 10 minutes. Season with salt to taste.


Spread eggplant mixture evenly across the bottom of the prepared casserole dish; sprinkle with a few tablespoons of Parmesan cheese. Spread zucchini in an even layer over top. Lightly salt and sprinkle with a little more cheese. Continue layering in this fashion, with tomatoes, mushrooms, onion, and bell pepper, covering each layer with a sprinkling of salt and cheese.


Bake in preheated oven until vegetables are tender, 45 minutes.
