Baked Ratatouille

December 16, 2016

20161117_172436.jpgI am extremely proud of how this recipe turned out. This recipe looks so pretty when it is baked and when it is waiting to be baked. It is worth the extra effort. It is also a recipe you can feel good eating. It is cozy and yet filled with vegetables. I found this recipe on buzzfeed (recipe video here). I had a smaller skillet than the one used in the recipe, so I roughly halved the recipe. My husband and I served this as a side with Chicken Parmesan. We also used the leftovers to make Chicken Veggie Sandwich20161117_164800.jpg20161117_164806.jpg
