Corn and Zucchini Ratatouille- Curtis Stone

 This month, Cook Like a Star is cooking recipes from Curtis Stone.  I had no problem, finding recipes I wanted to make and so far, I think, I have made four different dishes.  Just type in Curtis Stone recipes and you will find many good sounding recipes.  Also, Curtis has written a number of cook books and these too are listed on his site.

We would love to have you join us.  Contact Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids.  This month's hosts are Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids, Baby Sumo from Eat your heart out and Grace from Life can be simple.

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat the oil in a large sauce pot over medium-high heat.

  1. This is definitely a different take from the usual ratatouille recipe which I've usually seen! And it looks simple and delicious! This would be a very lovely side dish! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Chaya,

    Love this lemony flavoursome side dish. Simple is good!


  3. This looks like a lighter type of ratatouille than what we normally see. Btw, thanks for joining us in this bloghop.
