Cheat a little — premade ravioli makes this slow cooker ratatouille an easy one-pot meal
Ratatouille is a classic French dish made of stewed vegetables. It's healthy, hearty and easy to make, especially in a slow cooker, and so good served over pasta.
This flavorful combination of veggies typically includes eggplant and tomatoes as its main ingredients. I’ve included zucchini, onion, carrots and garlic in the mix. At the end of the cooking time, I tossed fresh cheese ravioli into the slow cooker for added heartiness.
And what would be better to serve with veggies and pasta than toasted Italian bread? Add a drizzle of olive oil and some Parmesan cheese, and you have yourself a delicious, meatless dinner.
