Fireside Ratatouille

I just can’t seem to help but to fall for most anything Mediterranean and this dish is certainly no exception. Bold flavor and a beautifully orchestrated combination of textures makes this one of those recipes your family is sure to love and you’re sure to enjoy making time and time again.
