Hi everyone! I’m Melissa from Dancing For Food. Samantha asked if I could share a recipe on her blog, and I was more than happy to oblige. As I was thinking about what I wanted to share, I kept going back to this recipe for Pizza Ratatouille Stir Fry. It was one of the first recipes my husband and I created out of our heads and because of that it stands out the most to me.

It started with a bunch of leftovers from making pizza when our friends were over back at the beginning of August. We had half-empty containers of pizza sauce, roasted peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes to use up, so we put our thinking caps on and got cooking! The text-only recipe is at the end of the post.

Start by sweating garlic and onions in a large skillet or frying pan:

Add red pepper flakes for a spicy kick:

After a few more minutes, throw in some roasted red and yellow peppers as well as chopped fresh red and yellow peppers:

Last but not least, add sun-dried tomatoes, dried oregano, pizza sauce, and salt and pepper to taste:

Serve on a bed of cooked brown rice and top with shredded mozzarella cheese:

It turned out great and we’ve made it a couple more times since August. It’s a easy dish to make when you have some random ingredients to use up. It can also be easily customized. I think it would be great with zucchini or eggplant thrown in too.

I hope you try it and love it! Come on over and visit me at Dancing For Food for more recipes as well as fitness posts and everyday life posts.  A huge thank you to Samantha for having me as a guest blogger!
