This is a beautiful vegetable ratatouille that is immersed in a tomato sauce, swirled with a homemade Bechamel sauce. It's lovely and crisp on top, and soft and creamy on the bottom. This is a delight to enjoy any time of the year.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

round dish of Creamy Ratatouille


  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and bring 2-3 cups of water to a boil in a pot. Thinly slice potatoes.
  2. thinly sliced tomatoes

  3. Season water with salt, then drop potato slices in. Cook for about 4 minutes until parboiled. Drain.
  4. par boiling potatoes
  5. Thinly slice all the other vegetables and set aside.
  6. sliced egg plant, yellow squash & zucchini
  7. To make the Bechamel sauce, heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring nonstop, until well incorporated but not browned.
  8. making sauce in pan
  9. Add milk about 1/4 cup at a time and stir until smooth.

  14. Creamy & pasta sauce in baking dish
  15. Make little stacks of the veggie slices in your hands first in order to make the big spiral. This makes it easier to go around the baking dish, especially if you're going in colour order like I did here. I think it makes it visually pop!
  16. colorful vegetable slices

  17. Place the stacks of veggies in the sauce around the dish. The Bechamel's thickness also aids in keeping the veggies standing up nicely.
  18. colorful veggie slice around outside of round baking dish
  19. Work your way to the middle until it's completely packed. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with some salt and pepper.

Use so many of the wonderful vegetables from your garden for this flavorful, aromatic dish. I substituted cucumbers for some of the zucchini.


I cut out the middle part with the seeds, and put that in the salad for tonight.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet. Add chicken and saute about 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.

I recently saw a recipe using a combination of squashes, zucchini, summer squash and eggplant and gave it my own twist! It is vegetarian and came out yummy and it was so easy!

The ratatouille served on a plate.
