translated by Italian with
Ratatouille is a vegetable side dish, typical French which can be compared to our Caponata.
Wash and cut the vegetables, remove as much as possible from the white zucchini, eggplant and peppers.
Place in boiling water the tomatoes and peppers, peel them. Boil the vegetables, each on their own not to mix the flavors.
Sauté the onions in a pan with three tablespoons of oil.
Add the peppers. Halfway through cooking, add the tomatoes, lalloro, salt, pepper and minced garlic. Simmer for 40 minutes.
Into another pan, cook the eggplant and zucchini with three tablespoons of olive oil for about 15 minutes until they soften without discard.
When all the vegetables are tender, but not pulped, bring them together in a single pan, stir gently, leaving them to cook together a few more minutes over very low heat.
Season with salt and pepper and serve.
