Ever since the movie Ratatouille came out – about the cartoon rat who wanted to cook, -, I’ve wanted to create something similar to his signature dish. I even took a comprehensive classical cooking course and we learned how to make it so the flavors were distinct and you could taste each veggie on it’s own even when mixed together in the same spoonful.
But I still wanted that beautiful dish that the silly cartoon rat in the movie made! The day before my husband came home from New York I found a video from Goodful that inspired this. You can make several batches so you can have this ready to snack on for the rest of the week.
5 tbs Avocado oil
1/2 chopped Red pepper
1/2 chopped sweet Onion
6-8 Roma tomatoes
2 yellow squash
1 can 28 oz crushed tomatoes (or diced tomatoes that you can blend)
3-5 cloves Garlic (use more if you want more garlic flavor)
Small bunch of chopped Basil
Salt and pepper to taste
*Optional 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (dried)
If possible, make extra batches because it tastes just as good the next few days when you reheat it. Enjoy!
