Winter Squash and Apple Ratatouille

This is an impressive dish to serve family style with a rotisserie chicken on a crisp fall evening. Many chefs will tell you the best way to make roasted vegetables is to parboil them before throwing them in the oven, but that can take a lot of time. The lid on the Every Day Pan is safe for oven use up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and makes it easy to give vegetables a quick steam before roasting, which has the same effect as parboiling.
