Crockpot Ratatouille

This vegetarian stew is a great way to use all of the zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes that gardens everywhere are producing in abundance this time of the year.
  • 1 large onion -- sliced into thin wedges
  • 2 medium zucchini -- sliced
  • 1 red pepper -- cut into thin strips
  • 1 eggplant -- cut into 1" chunks
  • 4 large tomatoes -- cut into wedges
  • 1 T. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 T. pesto
  • 1/4 c. olive oil

Layer the vegetables in the order listed -- onions thru tomatoes -- in a large crockpot. Sprinkle the vegetables with the seasonings, pesto and olive oil and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. Serve in bowls with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and crusty bread for a light meal.

To make this stew heartier, add a can of drained, rinsed great northern beans before serving.

  • Yields: 4-6 servings
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes plus cooking time
