Does ratatouille give you that warm sense of comfort? It sure does for me! I grew up watching my mom make different varieties of ratatouille, so there is definitely a reminder of home in this dish. Always full of love, flavor and most likely all your vegetables that were about to go bad. Makes great leftovers!
