Summer On A Sheet Pan: Ratatouille Edition

Ratatouille isn’t just a Disney movie—but you already knew that, right? If you know the movie, then, of course, you also know the luscious French Provençal dish that is that adorable little mouse’s namesake. The French have a way with vegetables and there may be no better example of that than ratatouille. This simple, silky stew of eggplant, tomato, zucchini flavored with onions and garlic—and always lots of good olive oil—is a delicately-seasoned celebration of summer’s most beloved vegetables. While ratatouille is delicious served all on its own—it’s classically rich with oil, so it’s a rib-sticking vegetarian dinner as-is—we’ve added sausage to the mix to take this sheet pan dinner recipe to new heights. If you’re a lover of sheet pan dinners you’ll definitely want to check out our Cabbage And Sausage Sheet Pan.

Classic Ratatouille Ingredients—Plus A Few Extras

Sweet summer vegetables get a slow-roast—nearly a poach—in plenty of olive oil. Ratatouille really is as simple as that. And while we love the classic version, our easy sheet pan version is pretty killer, too. Plus, we’re adding sausages to bulk it up—insurance against any complaints from the peanut gallery—and recommend serving it over a bed of creamy polenta. Here’s everything you’ll need to make this easy ratatouille recipe:

  • Onion
  • Fresh garlic
  • Yellow squash
  • Zucchini
  • Eggplant
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Herbs! Fresh basil, fresh thyme.
  • Your favorite sausage. This can really be any sausage that you love! Turkey, chicken or pork sausage. You could even use a veggie sausage, like Beyond Meat or Field Roast. Just adjust the cook time if need be, according to the package directions.

How To Make Ratatouille On A Sheet Pan

Stew on a sheet pan? Yep! You’ll need a rimmed baking sheet for sure. Not only is there half a cup of olive oil in this recipe, the vegetables will release a fair amount of moisture as the ratatouille bakes. Just bear in mind that things will get a bit saucy—in the best way—when selecting your baking sheet. So, you’ve got your rimmed baking tray. Now what?

  1. Chopping. Lots and lots of it. But the good news is that once the zucchini, squash, eggplant and onions are sliced, the real work of this ratatouille recipe is done.
  2. Toss all of the vegetables with olive oil, salt, basil and thyme on that rimmed sheet pan.
  3. Nestle the sausages into the vegetables.
  4. Bake! Bake for 40 minutes, until the vegetables are meltingly tender and the sausages are cooked.
  5. Serve! We think this is particularly good served over creamy polenta, but you could just serve it as it is with a big salad and some crusty bread.

  • claire

    Can I use a convection oven setting to cook this?

    Hi Claire, you can. Convection oven settings will cook things faster so best to turn the temperature for this one down to 375 instead of 400 and start checking to see if it is done after 25 minutes. Hope you enjoy!

    I came across this recipe through (I think) a NYT Cooking aggregation of sheet pan recipes. I'd recently moved to a place where cooking is difficult (limited space), and had been searching for low-mess somewhat-simpler ideas.

    Let me just say that this recipe plus my own cheesy polenta was nearly a religious experience. Thanks, this is a keeper, and I've already passed it onto friends and family :)

    This is so great to hear, we are so glad you loved it Jon!

  • Kaiulani

    This was a great recipe! Simple and so comforting. I topped mine off with grated parmesan and served it on top of garlic butter quinoa. Delicious.

    Thanks Kaiulani, so happy you loved it!

  • Elisabeth

    This recipe is incredible! My dad has a vegetable garden with all of these ingredients so we picked them just for this recipe. We ended up only having ground Italian sausage so we formed a pound of it into 5 meatballs and cooked it the same and it turned out great. Best thing is there isn’t a ton to this recipe but the combination of flavors coming from these veggies and herbs on their own as they cook is so rich and delicious! We’ve made it twice now. A favorite (and healthy!)

    Thanks Elisabeth, we are so glad you love it!

  • Meredith

    We loved this! I didn't have all the ingredients, so I had to sub a few things (used extra squash instead of zucchini, used dried herbs instead of fresh, chopped a couple of tomatoes instead of using cherry) but the result was still tasty! I also chopped the eggplant as another reviewer mentioned. I used smoked sausage, and served over rice. My husband and 3yo gobbled it up, but I admit my 5yo only ate the squash and sausage and rice. Her loss, more leftovers for me!

    Thank you Meredith! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed it!

  • Tim
