Is that a Rat in your Ratatouille?

Is that a Rat in your Ratatouille?

I had a ton of leftover tomatoes so decided to try to make ratatouille.  I didn't have eggplant or some of the other ingredients that you find in some versions so I improvised (which happens a lot around here) and used what I had.  My husband LOVED it but the kids were not big fans.  It may have been the texture that got them or the fact that I told them that I put a rat in it 🙂   Not only is this recipe easy and delicious but it's brimming with lycopene.  Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and have been shown to have anti-cancer benefits, as well as supporting bone & heart health.

Anywhooo...here is the recipe, I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!
