Ratatouille with White Beans

5

Ratatouille is a stewed vegetable dish from the French Provencal traditional menu, originating in Nice. In most recipes, the key ingredients are the same but the process of cooking the dish vary between each chef's preference. Some sauté all the vegetables together and simmer on the stove top, some sauté the vegetables separately and layer and bake. Our family favorite is as delicious as any I ever tasted when traveling in France and is the easiest recipe of them all!!
