An amazingly easy to make vegetable and cheese dish.
Nick found this vegetarian dish in one of my German cookbooks. I have never made Ratatouille Roman Style before so I wasn’t sure how this dish would turn out.
Instead of cutting the Zucchini in little slices, like when you use a Mandoline vegetable slicer. This Roman Style Ratatouille shows them cut lengthwise, baked with fresh tomatoes and topped with cream, Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs. Yum!
This is a recipe for our ‘Easy Recipes for Two‘ video cooking series.
