Featured Recipe – Tomatoes & Summer Vegetables Ratatouille

A classic and simple fresh dish, packed with healthy vegetables. The dish can be altered to fit your family’s tastes, and to feature in-season produce.


2 medium-large zucchini, sliced

1 large onion, sliced into rings

1 1/2 cups sliced (fresh) mushrooms

1 green bell pepper, sliced into rings

2 – 3 large tomatoes, sliced

2 tsp parsley

2 tbsp olive oil

1 eggplant, cubed

Kosher salt, pepper to taste

Parmesan cheese, optional.


Preheat oven to 350oF.

In a medium skillet, heat olive oil. Add garlic and parsley, heat for 2 minutes. Add eggplant, cooking over medium heat until eggplant begins to soften (about 8 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Remove from heat and spread eggplant mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish (1 1/2 quart recommended).

Begin with layering the zucchini slices over the eggplant mixture in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper (if desired). Then, layer the onions over the zucchini, and season (if desired). Continue this layering with the mushrooms, pepper, and tomatoes until you use all the vegetables. Top with a sprinkled layer of parmesan, if desired.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until vegetables are evenly cooked and tender.

Tip: Vegetables can be arranged in many fashions, and the beauty of the vegetables is often the highlight when serving. The dish is often layered in a wreath-like design in a round dish, or in partially-overlapping rows.
