I get to know this dish from the movie Ratatouille (2007), a computer-animated film by Pixar 4 years ago. However, this attempt was not inspired by the movie, but Bobby Flay. He cooked ratatouille using grill, we cooked this the traditional way. I have craving for shepherd’s pie for so long. But having all meat in our diet is a concern. This dish was a perfect complement to shepherd’s pie that tends to be quite oily and meaty.
I searched epicurious for a traditional recipe for ratatouille, get this one with the most rated and votes. It turned out to be easy and simple. Serve it with pasta will be just fine too.
