WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - Chef Chris Manning’s mother was vegetarian, so she often made ratatouille, a stewed vegetable dish.

She would serve it over rice or pasta, like the chef did for us.

The dish hails from Nice, France.

The chef partially peeled the eggplant, but you can leave the skin on or peel it entirely.


- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 1 cup diced onion

- 1 cup diced celery

- 1 cup diced bell peppers in assorted colors.

- 1 cup diced yellow squash

- 1 cup diced zucchini

- 1 cup diced eggplant

- 1 cup diced tomatoes

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning or Herbes de Provence.

- Crushed red pepper for heat

- Salt and pepper to taste

- ½ cup dry white wine

Sauté vegetables and seasonings until onions begin to wilt. Add wine, cover, and cook on low heat until vegetables are tender.

Garnish with parmesan cheese.
