Yeah, but how can you go wrong sauteing fresh veggies in olive oil with herbs added?  That doesn't mean it was anything that a French person would recognize as ratatouille.

We're not all michelin-starred chefs you know :-p Your average French person these days would sadly more easily recognize a frozen pizza than homemade ratatouille, but so it goes. Did you take a picture? If so, post it and I will ask what people think.

No pictures, I was thinking about it but the kids were hungry and my wife thinks I'm weird when I take pictures of food.  And other times too.

I slice them about 1/4 thick, and make a marinate from olive oil, fresh  minced garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano. A half hour soak, then on the grill for abot 3 minutes per side. Don't even taste like vegetables when I'm done.

This ^^^^^

Love them grilled EVOO, salt and pepper.  8)

We always goto restaurants and re arrange the food on the plate to make food faces...and take pics and send em to laff...
It is GOOD fun. :D :D :D

My wife whipped up a batch of zuchini chocolate chip cookies last night. yummy. recipe from 'Animal Vegetable Miracle'. Can't say the zuc really makes much flavour contribution but it's a good way to get rid of excess if you don't have chickens.

+1 I have been known to use pickles instead. Interesting flavor combo.

Seriously? 
Dill or sweet pickles in the "pickle bread"?
