Ever see the movie, Ratatouille? Found a recipe for it but I didn't have some of the ingredients, so I came up with my own version. This time of year is wonderful because of the abundance of these veggies.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This ratatouille recipe is easy and delicious! It's filled with eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Rich garlic tomato sauce bakes in between the layers of veggies. Topped with melted cheese, it's a fantastic summertime dinner.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put spaghetti sauce, onions, garlic, and thyme in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish. Stir to mix.
Arrange eggplant, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, and tomatoes (like laid-over dominoes) around the dish in the sauce.
Drizzle olive oil lightly over the veggies and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Lay a piece of parchment paper, cut to size of the casserole dish, over veggies (just learned this new trick).
Bake for 45 minutes.
Remove parchment paper and add Monterey Jack cheese. Return to oven and bake for 10 more minutes. Serve over cooked rice.
