How to Freeze Your Large Family Ratatouille 

Did you know that most people say ratatouille tastes even better when reheated? If you make it in big batches for your large family, you can store it in the fridge or the freezer. Always put it in a container with a lid that keeps air out. 

If you want to store the Large Family Ratatouille in the fridge, you can keep it there for as long as five days. If you want to put it in the freezer, you can keep it there a bit longer. The ratatouille will stay good in the freezer for up to six months. If you make extra every time, you will always have some ratatouille available to heat up for the family.

What to Add to Your Large Family Ratatouille

While this is a meatless dish, you can add meat to it if you feel like it needs it. Flank steak is one popular type of meat that people often add to ratatouille. However, you can choose from other meats, including chicken or Italian sausage. If you would like to make the dish even more filling, you can add quinoa or rice. Although optional, these are great additions to the Large Family Ratatouille in the Slow Cooker.
