(1) 6 oz can tomato paste
1 black zucchini
1 zucchini green
1 yellow summer squash
1 onion
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup vegetable stock
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 piece parchment 
Fresh shaved Parmesan Cheese
garlic salt or salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375°.
With a Slice-O-Matic set on thinnest setting, or with a very sharp knife slice the zucchinis, and summer quash, into round disk shapes. 
Making sure to trim the ends, chop them up, and save them for later.
In a sauce pan heat the can of tomato paste, a teaspoon of olive oil, onion, peppers, garlic, stock, and vegetable scrapes till wilted. Let cool slightly, then blend in blender till mixture is smooth.
Spread sauce on the bottom of your 8 in round baking dish.
Then alternating slices concentrically from the outer edge working you way inward, overlap them slightly so you can see a bit of the other vegetable. 
Drizzle with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with salt and paper or garlic salt.
Cover dish with parchment paper cut to fit inside baking dish.
Bake in oven till vegetables are tender, about 35 minutes.
Sever with a sprinkle of shaved Parmesan cheese, and a baguette. You'll feel like your in the movie.

My kids love the movie Ratatouille, but not some of the ingredients Disney has for their Ratatouille recipe. So on a night when they didn't have much homework, and we could experiment, we came up with this recipe.

I would love to meet you on Facebook or on Twitter
