Ratatouille Recipe- Inspired by the classic Disney movie!

Bring the classic Disney movie to life with this veggie packed Ratatouille recipe! Quick, delicious, and fun for the entire family. Especially when paired with 

This baked ratatouille recipe is a fun and colorful side dish recipe that is inspired by a Disney classic. Has anyone seen the movie? 

This movie is near and dear to my heart. When I watched it with my son, years and years ago, it sparked his interest in cooking. From that moment on, he was thrilled to be included in the kitchen. 

It seemed like a no-brainer to make this simple side dish recipe. 

 Ratatouille Side Dish 

Homemade ratatouille ingredients

  • Tomato sauce
  • Onion
  • Garden Garlic Paste
  • Eggplant
  • Zucchini 
  • Yellow squash 
  • Red pepper 
  • Yellow pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese

We like to used garlic paste for this recipe, however you could substitute that with minced garlic if needed.

How to make Ratatouille:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Stir together your onion, garlic paste, and tomato sauce. Spread into the bottom of a 9 inch pan.
  3. Line all of your chopped veggies in your dish. I started on the outer edge and worked my way in. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Cover your veggies with a piece of parchment paper slid just inside your baking dish. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until your veggies are tender. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

Recipe tip: Use a mandolin to help slice the vegetables evenly. The other option is a sharp knife. Try to keep the vegetables the same thickness. 

There you have it, folks! This side dish is easy to make and a fun way to attempt to get your little ones to eat their veggies! It also happens to be a super impressive dish to serve for any occasion (the layered veggies are insanely beautiful)!

Credit where credit is due please! Thomas Keller served as consultant(so much as having producers briefly stagiare at French Laundry) and created this dish based on a slightly older dish he had made. I love this movie, but I think if you're going to talk about this Thomas Keller dish, you should mention him!

What a fantastic idea to make recipes that go along with Disney movies! Can't wait to see the rest. :) This ratatouille dish looks lovely and I'm sure tastes even better. Cheers to all those fresh veggies! (and fresh fruits in the cobbler recipe you shared over at Whipperberry!) Excited to try this. :)
