Non-weird Potluck dishes

Susan, I posted this easy ratatouille a while back but it's so simple it's
hardly a recipe and always met with approval at the extremely SAD potlucks
I've brought it to:

Simplest Ratatouille

!  medium eggplant, large chop
2 medium zucchini, large chop
1 onion, large chop
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium can stewed tomatoes (crushed is less juicy but it works)
2T Basil, oregano or to taste

Dry saute onions in a large pot until translucent, add garlic and saute until
fragrant.  Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.  Stir and
lower heat, simmer, stirring occasionally, 35 minutes or until the texture

I've added red bell pepper, garbanzos, crushed red pepper and small white
beans to this (not at the same time!) and it's been great every time.  When
REALLY pressed for time, I've skipped the saute step altogether, tossed the
whole thing into a really big microwaveable casserole and nuked it, covered,
on HIGH for 25 minutes, sometimes adding some orzo to keep the juices from
spilling over.  It's yummy with pasta, rice or just by itself.
