Ratatouille 

Ratatouille (isratatouille niçoise) is a traditional southern French Provençal stewed vegetable dish, originating in Nice. It was originally a meal made by poor farmer's and usually prepared in the summer with fresh "summer vegetables" such as tomatoes, onions, zucchini, garlic, bell peppers and other various herbs, but now eggplant is usually added to the ingredients. The dish can be served with a side dish or an appetizer along with bread, rice or pasta.
