Quick Ratatouille, comfort food

Well folks, on those days when life seems like it's just tough and the men are all thick and stupid, this is the dish to reach for. Its supper easy and supper yummy. It helps cure the knot in your stomach cause he didn't call and is apparently a huge moron.

Things you need:
3 cloves crushed garlic
1 med eggplant, halved and sliced crosswise (half-circles)
3 med zucchini, sliced
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
4 sprigs fresh thyme
1 can stewed tomatoes
1/2 c red wine
1 Tbl Olive Oil

Heat olive oil in the dutch oven. This one is my sister's, she got it for Christmas and was nice enough to let me try it out! Once the oil is heated add the garlic and thyme and Sauté. I really love the frozen garlic that I bought from Trader Joes. When I'm in a hurry it makes this faster and easier!

Pour the wine into the pan and stir. YUM!
If your using eggplant add them and the squash. I don't like the texture of eggplant so I don't use it. Stir to coat all the veggies and the add the tomatoes. Let this delicious joy simmer until the squash is tender.

Add mushrooms and let simmer until cooked.

When you plate, add cheese. It makes it even gooeyer and yummier! See easy and once you eat it you will taste how super comforting it is.
