Patties:
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese (cubed)

Method

Patties: In bowl, mix together beef, 2 tbsp (25 mL) water, salt and pepper. Divide into quarters; shape each around 2 tbsp (25 mL) goat cheese to make 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patty.

In large nonstick skillet, fry patties over medium-high heat, turning once, until browned yet still slightly pink inside, about 6 minutes. Remove to plate. Drain off any fat in pan.

In same pan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper, stirring often, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes.

Add eggplant, yellow pepper and zucchini; cook for 5 minutes. Push vegetables to side of pan; add tomatoes and tomato paste to other side, breaking up tomatoes with potato masher. Stir into vegetables and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes.

Nestle patties into ratatouille; cover and simmer until no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
