Ratatouille (Frugal Food Thursday)

Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday!  If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below! 

These recipes are also listed at these wonderful linkup parties - thank you to all the hosts for allowing me to link up!

Here's one of the very first recipes I featured here at Frugal Follies - over three years ago!

Ratatouille is a great recipe for spring, as squash first becomes available at the grocery store.  And by using canned tomatoes bought on sale with coupons, and other vegetables bought cheaply at ALDI or other inexpensive sources of produce, it can be very frugal!

Later on in the summer, use your garden produce to save even more!

Here's the recipe:


1/4 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves
1 onion, sliced
1 eggplant, peeled and diced
3 zucchinis, unpeeled and sliced
1 green pepper, diced
2 14-oz. cans tomatoes
1 tsp. basil
Salt and pepper to taste

Saute garlic and onion in oil until limp.  Add eggplant and toss in oil.  Add zucchini and green pepper and cook for 5 minutes.  Add canned tomatoes, basil, salt, and pepper.  Cook covered, for 20 minutes on medium-low heat.  Uncover and simmer down for another 20 minutes.

There are lots more easy and cheap recipes posted here at Frugal FolliesClick here for the list!
