Ratatouille

Extract from Wikipedia...Ratatouille (pronounced rat-a-too-ee) is a traditional French Provencal stewed vegetable dish, originating in Nice.

I cooked this dish yesterday evening for dinner. I double the recipe so that I can serve this over the next day, saved my time for cooking on Sundays :D My boy did not complain over his meal time as this sweet and hearty stewed dish goes well with the rice :D Good way of serving large varieties of vegetables for his meals :)

This Sunday noon only me & my little gal at home, so for lunch I reheat some of the Ratatouille and cracked an egg in the middle and poached till done :D
