Veggie & Potato Ratatouille | Food

Last night for dinner, I was scrambling to come up with dinner ideas with the ingredients we had at hand at home.

My friends came up with Ratatouille. One of which, REALLY, wanted it.

I’ve never made it before but decided to get creative and give it a shot!

This ended up being so good. I was so impressed with myself. This filled us up but made us feel good. Good ingredients, healthy and delicious!
