Ratatouille

Tasty, healthy, diet-friendly food! What’s not to love?

Ratatouille

1/2 Tablespoon EVOO
2 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
1 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
2 eggplant, cubed
1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
4 small zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt
pepper

In a large pot heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onions and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 6 to 7 minutes. Add eggplant; stir well to mix. Add peppers; stir to combine. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep vegetables from sticking. Add tomatoes, zucchini, herbs, salt and pepper; mix well. Cover and cook over low heat about 15 minutes, or until eggplant is tender but not too soft.

AMYELLA

Amyella (pronounced Amy-ella) is a pseudonym for Amy Levitt, a fitness and health food fanatic and a beach girl at heart. She has been sharing her sometimes nonsensical thoughts and self-amusing stories online since 2002 and currently spends a good deal of her time wrangling her 90 pound Rottweiler and 60 pound Boxer. Which is quite a show.
The origin of the name Amyella.

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
