From the Test Kitchen

Ratatouille, beloved in Provence, France, is a comforting, satisfying dish of stewed late-summer vegetables. Here, we’re using a medley of eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes (yours may be red or yellow) to make delectable tarts, garnished with creamy goat cheese and chives. A side of summer squash—marinated with vinegar and olive oil to soften its crunch—completes the dish with more fresh, seasonal flavor.
