Rat Patootie

I can't spell it, it is French, I won't try. I've been craving something like this, and didn't realize it until we started watching the Pixar movie, because SOMEONE kept asking to see mice. This recipe seemed a bit small for a family size, but good enough for a mommy and a toddler. Here goes.

1 medium-largish zucchini sliced
1 small eggplant (I used 2 thin chinese eggplants, you be the judge on how much you like eggplant) sliced
1/2 onion, diced
1-2 cloves garlic
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes.
1 cube chicken bullion

1. Fry up the onion and garlic with a lot of olive oil until the onion is semi-transparent
2. Add in eggplant and zucchini, cook until somewhat transparent or at least changing color.
3. Add the can of tomatoes and bullion cube, once the cube is dissolved cover the pan and let the veggies simmer until the zucchini and eggplant are clear(you know what I mean...please say you do!).

Serve up. I added parmesan and pepper, but I hear fresh basil or oregano tastes good too. My 2 year old loved it, so next time you are watching a Pixar movie about rats, try this dish out, and see if you can all feel the ambiance.
