This ratatouille recipe uses up all those wonderful summer vegetables—tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, and sweet onion! This old favorite is new again when served with poached eggs!
In a large, nonreactive skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes, or until soft. Add zucchini and eggplant and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more, or until soft. Add garlic and paprika and cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Add salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar, and simmer for 7 to 8 minutes.
With the back of a large spoon, make four depressions in the ratatouille. Drop 2 teaspoons of pesto into each. One at a time, crack each egg into a small bowl, then slide the egg into a depression in the ratatouille. Cover skillet and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, or until eggs are done to your liking. Garnish with parsley and olives before serving.
