  • 2 Onions peeled and sliced (I use Spanish)
  • 2 Beefsteak Tomatoes cored and sliced, then chopped (see picture above)
  • 2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1 TSP Kosher Salt
  • 1 Yellow Squash chopped
  • 2 Zucchini chopped and divided evenly
  • 5 Roasted Garlic Cloves
  • 1 TSP Fresh Cracked Pepper
  • 3 TBSP Herbs de Provence
  • 4 TBSP Grated Parmesan or Parmesan with Asiago (optional)


  • Using a stainless steel pan or other non-reactive pan (avoid aluminum and cast iron when cooking tomatoes for any length of time), heat over medium-high heat. Add in the oil. When the oil shimmers, add in the onion and salt. Mix well. Allow to cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add in the tomatoes and stir.
  • Add in the yellow squash, ½ of the zucchini, garlic, pepper and herbs. Stir well.
  • When the mixture begins to bubble, reduce the heat to low. Cook uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • After an hour, add in the remaining zucchini. Cook 1 more hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Taste, adjust seasonings and taste again.
  • Serve hot and happy eating!


We add in the second half of the zucchini after an hour so the ratatouille has just a bit more structure. If you want all the veggies to have the same consistency, add in all the zucchini at the same time.
