Add lentils to the traditional ratatouille recipe to make it a vegetarian main dish. And because it's made in the slow cooker, it's easy and convenient.

I found this absolutely delicious. And extremely easy to prep & make. Chop items, toss everything in the crock-pot and go. I put a bit of shaved Parmesan on before eating. Amazing. I used red lentils as that is what I keep in my pantry. And zucchini over summer squash. This will become one of my go-to recipes.
