 Fat Free Ratatouille [R1]
 1 large eggplant ( about 1.5 LB's )
 1 medium zucchini ( 2" to 3" by about 10" long ) about 3/4 lb.
 1 large yellow crookneck squash ( about 3/4 LB's )
 1 medium green pepper ( about 4" in diameter )
 1 medium red pepper ( about 4" in diameter )
 1 - 5.5 oz. can V8 Juice ( or other vegetable type juice )
 1 - 6 oz. can tomato paste
 2 tsp. chopped garlic 
 2 cups water
 2 tbs. each of fresh chopped oregano, basil, & thyme
        (If using dry spice use 1/2 tsp. each)
 Combine all ingredients in a large pot as you prepare them.
 Peel eggplant and dice into 1/2" cubes.
 Split and quarter zucchini and yellow crookneck, than dice into
 1/2" pieces.
 Remove tough stem and seeds for both peppers and dice into 1/2"
 Add the water, tomato paste and V8 Juice and mix well.
 Add the garlic and the spices and mix again.
 Heat pot on medium/high for a few minutes until just ready to
 boil.  Reduce heat to simmer and cover.  Stir periodically to
 prevent burning.  Cook at least 1 hour, a long simmer enhances
 the flavor.
 Serve over pasta, rice, potatoes, wheat berries, lettuce, or
 alone.  Keeps quite well in the icebox.

 *NOTE:Marinade absorption not included in above values, Sod. will
 be higher than shown, by how much I can not tell.
 Note:Two of my carnivore friends commented on how flavorful the
 CHICKEN { HA!HA!  8-) } was and wanted to know what I marinate it
 in.  I like it both ways and have even added the TVP the next
