Ratatouille Pasta Bake – Gluten Free
Ratatouille pasta bake anyone? French comfort food that is packed with vegetables. Gotta love their style. Traditional ratatouille is made with zucchini, eggplants, onion, bell pepper, herbs de Provence and garlic. The go2kitchens version is a gluten free pasta bake. I used a pasta made with red lentils, sweet potatoes, carrots and beets. Lots of nutrition even the pasta! Enjoy!
