This baked ratatouille recipe is heavenly when made with homegrown vegetables. It's so good, I sometimes make the casserole all for myself, then eat it for lunch a few days in a row.—Catherine Lee, Chandler, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 4 bacon strips, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 large eggplant (about 1-1/4 pounds), peeled and cubed
  • 4 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into strips
  • 8 to 12 ounces sliced Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon and onion over medium heat until bacon is crisp; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, oil, garlic, salt and Italian seasoning.
