Baked Ratatouille Recipe

This recipe is heavenly when made with homegrown vegetables. It's so good, I sometimes make the casserole all for myself, then eat it for lunch a few days in a row.—Catherine Lee, Chandler, Arizona

"My new favorite ratatouille recipe! Did bake it covered kept it moist and the vegetables were just right..not too soft. And did omit the bacon and didn't miss. Still lots of flavor. Used provolone cheese since a favorite. Would stir the casserole after baking as better taste when mixed. Thanks for a great way to prepare this dish!"

"Wow, this is packed with flavor and, while it is delicious right out of the oven, the next day it's even better. I will definitely keep this recipe close and use it again. Yummy!!"

"I found that the tomato mixture was too sparse. Also, my zucchini on top came out a little bit dry. I don't think the bacon or eggplant really complemented it. It was okay, I would probably make it again because my mom liked it a lot, but probably not for only myself."

"I omitted the bacon and added fresh mushrooms. Delicious! I have also added browned chicken tenderloins on top for the last 30 minutes of baking."

"like others, I made this dish for our son since he loved the movie. I enjoyed it, and will be adding it to my recipe collection. The only change in made is shredded cheese, and I can see where the sliced cheese would be better. Also, I baked it uncovered, per directions, but I may cover it next time, and let it crisp up the last 10 minutes or so uncovered. I thought it left the dish a bit too dry on top."

"This recipe is absolutely amazing. We had never had ratatouille before, but are completely hooked on this one. The only substitution we made was we placed mozzarella slices on top instead of the monterey jack. This dish was incredibly delicious. It tasted very fresh and you felt good about eating it."

"This recipe was delicious the first day right out of the oven. Not as good as leftovers reheated in the microwave. Too oily. Next time I will reduce the oil to 1-2 tbs. since the cheese produces oil already."

"My daughters are hooked on the Disney Movie Ratatouille, so I looked up a recipe to surprise them with.. The enjoyed the surprise but not the actual recipe. LOL.. But my husband and myself really loved this recipe. It was very yummy and was a refeshing change from the same ole vegetable side dish. Next time we are going to add cut up cooked chicken in with the vegetables for a meal."
