First thing was to open the red we were to sip while cooking and enjoying the Bruschetta...(really excellent bottle)

I was craving stuffed mushrooms so added those to the menu last minute for an appetizer. Here we go...
Sauteed the veggies down in butter, then added the crab, sherry, and herb.

Cooked for a few minutes, then added the Italian bread crumbs. Stuffed in the mushroom caps, basted with butter, Sherry and white wine and baked 450*F for 15 minutes...

Very good wine. The entire dinner was fantastic!
 
What a treat for the fortunate attendees, outstanding effort Keith, a masterpiece! RAY
 
All looks delicious. I just had ratatouille a couple days ago but had it with grilled sausages. We slice up the veggies instead of dicing like you did and stack them horizontally in a dish. Stuffed mushrooms may have to be on the menu here soon.
 
Oh Lord! Thats pretty awesome!
Thanks Brain!

Wow! Amazing looking meal!!
Thank you Steve!

LOL! Thanks Jim. I enjoy really great food, and I like to share it with other who do the same.

Thanks IIDSI, ratatouille is an underrated dish, but when done right and served when the veggies are just tender....Wow! Total flavor bomb!

I love this forum because every post I see as a challenge. Members elevate members. Your ratatouille crushes the best I've ever made. I literally have never felt the need to make the Thomas Keller version until now.
