Deconstructed Roasted Ratatouille

Filed under: Food,Side dish,Vegetable — Tags: , , — Mindy M. @ 4:07 pm

I tried to make ratatouille one day, after being inspired by that ever so cute catoon by the same name…terrible.  How sad, the food went in the trash.  Tuesdays trip to the farmers market inspired this dish.  Baby red and yukon gold potatoes meet sun dried tomatoes in olive oil meets cioppolini onions, baby squash and garlic all drenched in olive oil.

baby potatoes sliced 1/2 centimeter thick
baby squash (little little ones to be cooked & served whole)
small cioppolini onion chopped into quarters

Growing up I was always a weird kid…I loved my veggies.  Then again maybe I wasn’t so weird.  My family is full of great cooks and I grew up eating veggies from grandma’s garden that were well cooked.  This simple way of cooking zucchini or really any squash is so simple that it’s often overlooked. 

Zucchini sliced thinly
Olive oil

Heat olive oil in a stainless steel pan over medium high heat.  Add zucchini, and flip when lightly browned.  Season with salt and peper and remove when the zuchini are a little firmer than al dente pasta.
