  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
  2. Cut all of the vegetables into equal thin slices.
  3. In a large oven proof dish pour the chopped tomatoes and stir around to cover the bottom of the dish.
  4. Finely chop the garlic and chilli.
  5. Arrange alternating slices of aubergine, courgette, yellow squash, and red pepper around the edge of the dish working your way into the middle of the dish. Sprinkle pieces of chilli and garlic in between occasional vegetable slices.
  6. Spray the vegetables with the oil, season with salt and pepper, cover with greaseproof paper and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  7. While the vegetables are cooking prepare the couscous. Garnish the ratatouille with parsley before serving.

*If you can't find yellow squash you can use normal courgette instead. Add a crusty roll for an extra 140 calories.
