The other night I made a yummy ratatouille with spicy chicken sausage. (phase 1 friendly with the once in a while veggies)
2 Tablespoons garlic (the recipe called for onion so I added more garlic)
2 C diced eggplant, skin on
1 C peppers
1 C zucchini
1 C Yellow squash
1 can diced tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Basil
1 Tablespoon Parsley
1/2 teaspoon thyme
S/P to taste
saute the garlic in the EVOO, and the eggplant and thyme (about 5 minutes), add the peppers and squash cook for about 5 more minutes. Add the tomatoes, basil, parsley, and S/P and cook for a final 5 minutes.
While doing this I had the sausage cooking in another fry pan.
I chopped the sausage and added it to the vegetables. YUM
P.S. I don't really like peppers so I used mushrooms, and I added a couple of dashes of red pepper flakes for a little kick.
