At my house we've entered the time of year where using up garden vegetables becomes a major challenge.   I'm guessing gardeners everywhere have that blessed dilemma, which may have been what inspired the French vegetable stew called Ratatouille, which uses generous amounts of tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, and peppers.  This delightful version of Slow Cooker Ratatouille from The Perfect Pantry also adds optional ingredients like potatoes and mushrooms, and Lydia says you can use nearly anything you find in the garden or pantry in this classic dish.  I think Slow Cooker Ratatouille is a perfect Meatless Monday option, and using the slow cooker will help keep the house cool!
