Ratatouille, Summer Version

Time: 30 mins
Effort: Easy

1 each red pepper, green pepper cut into 1" chunks
3 shallots, coarsely chopped or one large Spanish onion
4 celery stalks cut into chunks
2 large ripe tomatoes diced, or, 10-12 cherry tomatoes halved
1 each yellow and green zucchini cut into 1" chunks
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp Hungarian Paprika
Salt & pepper to taste

In a large skillet saute peppers, shallots and celery with olive oil until almost tender. Add tomatoes, paprika and simmer until the tomatoes are almost dissolved. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add-ons or substitutes: Eggplant, dried sausage slices, chunks of ham... Or, make the recipe with only peppers and more onions, keeping the tomatoes of course....Be creative ! 

I used this recipe last night to fill tortillas, then sprinkled them with grated parmesan cheese and melted them in the oven, topped with spicy yogurt. Alongside I served the Skillet Veal. 

Bon Appetit !
