Squash Ratatouille

Ingredients

For the sauce:
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp. dried basil leaves
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes, drained

For the sliced veggies:
  • 2 yellow squash
  • 2 zucchinis

For the herb seasoning:
  • 1 tsp. dried basil leaves
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil

Preheat the oven for 375 degrees F.

Slice the zucchini and yellow squash into approximately 1/16-inch rounds, then set aside.

Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil in an 8-inch oven safe pan. Sauté onions, garlic and bell peppers until soft. Season with salt, pepper, and dried basil, then add diced tomatoes. Stir until ingredients are fully incorporated. Turn off the heat and smooth the surface of the sauce with your spatula.

Arrange the sliced veggies in alternating patterns on top of the sauce from the outer edge to the inside of the pan. Season with salt and pepper.

Mix herb seasoning ingredients and pour over the vegetables.

Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes, uncover, then bake for an additional 20 minutes. The vegetables should be soft.

Serve while hot or at room temperature.
