Reviews for Artichoke Ratatouille Chicken
"I have never had Ratatouille before, nor made it myself, but I love experimenting with different dishes.This is a definite keeper and repeater in my books. It is so delish!"
"I disagree with the word "speedy" in the description; nothing that takes an hour-and-a-half is speedy. However, this was very good and fresh-tasting. I used half a box of frozen artichoke hearts and mozzarella cheese instead of the asiago. Since Japanese eggplant wasn't available at my local grocery store I substituted zucchini. Next time I may add quartered fresh mushrooms as well. I prepared a half-recipe for the two of us, which made four generous servings when served over pasta."
