Ratatouille with Tomato Sauce
(13)
"I'm so excited to share #MyMuirGlen Ratatouille recipe! I got the opportunity to work with Muir Glen and The Feedfeed to create this recipe for you guys! Ratatouille is a baked vegetable dish in tomato sauce and I added my own twist into the recipe with sliced fresh mozzarella. I used the Muir Glen Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes to make the sauce and it was delicious! I’m going to take the leftovers for lunch this week! The recipe is on the blog! All of the ingredients from my local grocery co-op, East End Food Co-op!"
