Have you ever heard of Ratatouille? I’m not referring to the 2007 Disney movie with the cute little mouse named Remy and his pal Linguini, but the actual yummy French dish. In celebration of the 4/16 release of A Monster in Paris, I thought it would be fun to share the Ratatouille Recipe and some other great French inspired meals to help bring a little touch of France and A Monster in Paris to your home. Plus, with the upcoming garden season on its way and zucchinis being plentiful, this recipe will put the delicious summer squash and eggplant to good use in a mouthwatering entree!
