My niece and nephew spent the night at our house last Thursday, and while they were here, we watched the Disney/Pixar movie “Ratatouille.” There was a two-year-old and a three-year-old, and Puck and two cats… And so I missed about half of the movie, but the dish has been in my mind.

Coincidentally, I picked one ripe eggplant and a half dozen little courgettes from the garden the other day. Since it was fairly warm out, I didn’t want to start up the oven… So I decided to hang out on the deck and try making a “grilled rattatoulie.”

Step 1: cut and grill zucchini, eggplants, onions, and peppers.

Step 2: layer vegetables in a disposable pie tin. Add garlic, basil, and thyme; drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle salt and pepper, and top with about 1/2 jar of tomato sauce.

Step 3: Cover with tinfoil, and grill at medium-high heat for 20 minutes.

… Serve with other items that have been wrapped in tinfoil and grilled. For example, buttery garlic bread. It was really good!

  1. Yep.

    For some reason, when they are less than 5″ long they are “courgettes” in my mind – the become zucchini once they reach about 6″. Should have said aubergines, too 🙂
