    A beautiful ratatouille dish composed of sliced colourful vegetables arranged over a garlic-infused tomato sauce and baked. It's my version of the one in the animated movie with the same name!

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Spread tomato puree into the bottom of a large baking dish. Scatter onion and garlic over the puree and stir in 1 tablespoon olive oil and water until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and black pepper.
    3. Arrange alternating slices of aubergine, courgette, squash, red pepper and yellow pepper, starting at the outer edge of the dish and working towards the centre. Overlap the slices a little to display the colours. Drizzle the vegetables with 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle thyme leaves on top. Cover vegetables with a piece of baking parchment cut to fit.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until vegetables are roasted and tender, about 45 minutes. Serve with dollops of mascarpone cheese.

    great recipe! easy to make and brilliant to eat  -  25 Feb 2017


    We loved this dish! I'm ten and I made this for my family. It was so easy to do that I would do it again every night!!!!! We did not tomato paste so we used a jar of pizza quick sauce which worked great!  -  21 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved this! My 6 year old daughter couldn't get enough of it. The only changes made were 4 cloves of minced garlic instead of 1/4 cup, and I used Parmesan instead of Mascarpone cheese (I didn't put any cheese over mine and it was still wonderful!) My veggies were sliced about 1/8" inch thick and 45 minutes was the perfect amount of time. We served this over brown rice to make it more of a meal instead of a side. We have also tried this with Ricotta which was quite tasty, but Parmesan is still our favorite. We also added thin slices of red onion and that was yummy as well.  -  31 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
