Author Notes

Originating from the south of France, ratatouille is a great way to use the summer's best vegetables or whatever vegetables you have on hand. Try swapping summer squash for zucchini, red or yellow bell peppers for green ones, and parsley for the basil. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: —Healthline
