Default Roasted Ratatouille with Eggs and Cheese Recipe

I made this tonight without the cheese. It takes awhile to cook but not much time to prep. I also added a can of white beans and had my portion without an egg. Nice variation on a classic.

Serves 4
Ingredients:
1 small eggplant (about 12 ounces), trimmed, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 28-ounce can plum tomatoes with juices
2 tablespoons torn fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
4 large eggs
4 ounces part-skim mozzarella, thinly sliced and cut into 1/4-inch strips

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Combine eggplant, onion, zucchini, bell pepper and garlic in a large bowl; drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil; toss to coat. Spread the vegetables on the prepared baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Roast the vegetables, uncovered, turning often, until lightly browned and tender, about 45 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Cut tomatoes into chunks. Stir the tomatoes (and their juices), basil and parsley into the vegetables. Cover with foil.
4. Bake until the ratatouille is hot and bubbling, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven.
5. With a large spoon, make four evenly spaced indentations in the hot ratatouille. Carefully break an egg into each indentation. Sprinkle cheese over the vegetables and eggs. Bake, uncovered, until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

That sounds delicious. I think I need to make it while we still have eggplant, peppers, etc. in the garden. Where did you find it? I love this type of meal.

This recipe came from Mother Earth News. I just googled ratatouille recipe and checked out the options The original included garlic toast but I omitted that, no need for it.
