The Disney/Pixar hit, Ratatouille, gets its title from a savory summer stew once known for its complicated cooking method. We've come up with a quick, delicious version even Linguini, the movie's hapless kitchen helper, can master.
Ratatouille makes a great main dish when served over pasta, grilled artisan-style bread, or polenta. Or serve it as a side dish with summer's grilled burgers, chicken, or lamb.
The secret? The vegetables all cook together in the same pan. Those that require a longer cooking time go in first, while the more delicate vegetables are added later so they stay fresh and bright ― a delicious way to get your five vegetables a day.
