Braseltouille - Meatatarian Ratatouille

Rated as 4.81 out of 5 Stars

"Ratatouille a la Braselton, GA. I know some reviewers will cry 'False! This is nothing like ratatouille!' but pfft, because I took the premise of ratatouille, switched it up, and renamed it. Scoop it up on some crusty French bread and you'll be instantly transported to the thrilling town of Braselton."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until sausage is crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes; drain excess grease, reserving 1 tablespoon of the pan drippings. Transfer drained sausage to a large bowl and set aside. Cook and stir green bell pepper, onion, and garlic in the pan drippings until green pepper is soft, about 8 minutes; transfer to bowl containing sausage.
  3. Swirl olive oil in the hot skillet and cook and stir zucchini and yellow squash in hot oil until slightly softened, about 8 minutes; stir in tomatoes and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer until squash are tender, 10 to 15 more minutes.
  4. Stir sausage and vegetables into skillet, raise heat to high, and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until the liquid has reduced, about 15 minutes. Spread the mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish and sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the top.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the mixture is bubbly and the cheese has melted and begun to brown, 25 to 30 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • After removing everything at the end, I sometimes strain all of the liquid, reserving it for other recipes, such as using it in beef stew, or as the liquid in a slow-cooker pork tenderloin.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Scrumptious ! Sausage, cheese, spicy, what's not to like. I've been looking for a recipe like this and it was everything I wished for. When you make this be sure to take the cook's advice...

Easy enough for the man of the house to make. He did it all on the stove-top instead. Subbed the veggies for a bag of frozen Italian veggie mix and left out the green pepper (didn't have any). O...

This was awesome. Used 2 fresh chicken basil sausages...less fat, and yellow peppers. A big hit with the family.

I loved this! I used venison sausage because that is what I had on hand and it turned out fabulous!

Absolutely fabulous! My neighbor had given me some zucchini and yellow squash from the farmers' market, and I am so glad I found this recipe. I used kielbasa, because that's what I had. I chopp...

Great recipe, this is not the first recipe I have encountered that instructs reserving some liquid and then not mentioning where it is to be used.

I had an abundance of zucchini and yellow squash so came here and searched for a recipe with them in it. I came across this recipe and thought it sounded great because sausage was added and we ...
