By far one of my favorite Disney movies to come out in the last few years is Ratatouille. This adorable film features Remy, a rat with a refined palate and a love for French cooking. It’s a really sweet story of someone pursuing their passion, even if the people around them think it’s not possible… Also it’s about food, which is always a plus for me.
Remy teams up with a human lacking cooking skills, Linguini, and lets him take credit for his delicious creations in a popular French restaurant. When a notorious food critic comes to town, it’s up to Remy and Linguini to team up and impress him. Their recipe of choice is ratatouille.
I used this recipe as inspiration for my ratatouille. The only changes were that I subbed basil for the rosemary and left out the eggplant. I tried my hardest to make it neat looking like the movie’s version, but obviously my veggie stacking skills lack in comparison to Remy’s. I served it over steamed brown rice and it was delicious! I’ll have this recipe in my back pocket as a way to use up the overabundance of zucchini and yellow squash that seem to flood the farmer’s markets each summer.
