Grilled Vegetable Ratatouille

This French classic kicked up on the grill is great as a side dish to a grilled steak or smoked ribs, a pasta salad mix or as a vegetarian entrée. It’s equally great served hot or at room temperature. This is one vegetable dish that even the reddest of meat eaters will love!
