Friday’s Farmers Market Week Recipes

Ratatouille is one of my favorite ways to use up all the extra produce left in my refrigerator before my next CSA or Farmer's Market Visit. It's quick, easy and can be made with any ingredients you have on hand.  It can be made ahead and reheated when you are ready to serve it up.
