    I love ratatouilee -- although I drench the sliced eggplant in lots of salt for 20 minutes (remove sharp taste from it) then rinse in cold water before adding to the sauteed onion and garlic and zuccini. Even better the next day. - 7/26/07

    Excellent recipe! My children fell in love with ratatouille after the Disney movie, and learned how to make it -- my son wants to be a professional chef someday. Or a tuba player. Whatever. - 8/8/10

    This was an easy recipe! I added mushrooms and used rice in place of pasta. I grilled chicken breasts to go with the dish. My whole family loved it. Great summer meal! - 8/12/07

    Very good and easy to make. I dislike eggplant so I omitted this and doubled up on the squash. Great way to get in lots of veggies!! - 11/10/07
