Slow Cooker Ratatouille with Sausage

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"I made up this slow cooker ratatouille recipe when I had bought too many squash! I served it in soup bowls over noodles. My kids loved the Parmesan cheese on top. It would be great with a side of garlic bread and a salad, too! I'm not sure if it's done the way the French would do it, but it sure is tasty! It's more like a very chunky tomato sauce, and it's great over ride or wide noodles. The wide noodles catch the sauce better than spaghetti would."

  1. Place sausage links in a nonstick skillet over medium heat; cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Cool briefly and slice into rounds.
  2. Combine zucchini, summer squash, eggplant, onion, and bell pepper in a large bowl. Add oil, herbes de Provence, salt, and pepper; toss to coat vegetables.
  3. Place 1/3 of the vegetables in a slow cooker; layer 1/3 of the sausage and 1/3 of the crushed tomatoes on top. Repeat layers.
  4. Cover and cook on Low, about 8 hours. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Red bell pepper may be used in place of yellow, if preferred.
  • Don't be stingy with the herbs--I think slow cooking needs additional seasoning to make it taste seasoned enough when it's done. Italian seasoning, parsley, oregano, or basil--or any other herbs you like or have--may be substituted for herbes de Provence, if desired.

This is a beautiful way to use vegetables from the garden! I cut the salt to 1 tsp because I'm watching that level.
