Notes

  • Italian eggplants work very well for this recipe as they're usually small and less spongy than other types of eggplant. 
  • You can also use yellow squash instead of or in addition to zucchini. 
  • The most common herbs to use in ratatouille recipe are basil, thyme and parsley. You can use either or all of these herbs. I love topping ratatouille with some freshly chopped parsley. 
  • When it comes to chopping vegetables for ratatouille, you preference comes first. You can have the vegetables in bigger chunks, or dice them into small chunks.
