This is an old recipe but I had to bring onto the blog, finally. Green Tomato Ratatouille is a green dish for the greenest of holidays. You heard that right. St. Patrick’s Day is coming really soon and this is a twist on a classic French dish that hits the spot.
Ratatouille is a beautifully deconstructed dish composed of round colorful vegetables arranged in layered sliced over a bed of garlic-infused tomato sauce and diced onions. Green Tomato Ratatouille is our family take on this classic and traditional dish.
We swapped out the tomato sauce and regular tomatoes for the infamous green tomato. And, of course, added bacon and goat cheese to the mix for a real power kick!
