From the Test Kitchen

Ciambotta is a Southern Italian seasonal stew made of herbs and summer vegetables. Stews resembling ciambotta, like its French cousin ratatouille, are popular throughout Europe and were first regarded as country fare. As modern tastes skew towards the seasonally delicious, versions are popping up on menus everywhere. With heirloom tomato, zucchini and gorgeous purple potatoes, ours is a perfect, hearty way to enjoy the last days of summer.
