You can make ratatouille with almost any kind of squash or edible gourd. So use what you prefer, like yel- low, zucchini or scallop squash. As a special variation try edible bottle gourds, like the Italian cucuzzi (Lagenaria siceraria var.). Recently I harvest some snake gourds (Tricosanthes anguina var.) and peppers from my garden for my friend Lauren De Cillis. She made a delightful snake gourd ratatouille. Lauren’s Snake Gourd Ratatouille 6 small snake gourds 1 bunch basil leaves 1 lb. fresh okra ½ can black olives 1 clove garlic 1 can tomato paste, small can 6 sweet red and yellow peppers 1 TBS olive oil Wash, slice and chop all veggies, sauté in olive oil, medium-high until tender (about 20-30 minutes).
