Ingredients:

2 eggplants

  • 6 roma tomatoes

  • 2 yellow squashes

  • 2 zucchinis

SAUCE

2 Tablespoons of Driana Foods White Mojo

3 tablespoons of Driana Foods Red Mojo

  • 1/4 cup of Olive Oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 3 cups of Fresh grated tomatoes

    2 tablespoons

    chopped fresh basil, from 8-10 leaves

HERB SEASONING

1 1/2 tablespoons of Herbs de Provence

  • Preheat the oven for 375˚F (190˚C).

  • Slice the eggplant, tomatoes, squash, and zucchini into approximately 1/8 -inch, then set aside.

  • Make the sauce: Heat the olive oil in a 12-inch (30-cm) oven-safe pan over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion, add the Red Mojo, White mojo and cook for about 10 min. Add the bell peppers and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then add tomatoes. Stir until the ingredients are fully incorporated. Remove from heat, then add the basil. Stir once more, then smooth the surface of the sauce with a spatula.

  • Arrange the sliced veggies in alternating patterns, (for example, eggplant, tomato, squash, zucchini) on top of the sauce from the outer edge to the middle of the pan. Sprinkle the veggies with Herbs de Provence and season with salt and pepper. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover, then bake for another 20 minutes, until the vegetables are softened.

  • Serve while hot as a main dish or side. The ratatouille is also excellent the next day--cover with foil and reheat in a 350˚F (180˚C) oven for 15 minutes, or simply microwave to desired temperature.

  • Enjoy!
