  1. Step 1

    Place the zucchini in the centre of a clean tea towel. Squeeze to remove excess liquid. Transfer the zucchini to a large bowl with the mince, egg, half the basil and half the breadcrumbs. Season. Divide the mixture into 8 portions. Use your hands to shape each portion into a 2.5cm-thick patty.
  2. Step 2

    Place remaining breadcrumbs on a plate. Roll each patty in breadcrumbs to coat. Transfer to a separate plate. Place in the fridge for 10 mins to chill.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, heat 1 tbs of the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3-4 mins or until the onion softens. Add the pasta sauce and reduce heat to low. Cook for 5 mins or until the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in the remaining basil.
  4. Step 4

    Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the rissoles and cook for 3-4 mins each side or until browned and almost cooked through.
  5. Step 5

    Preheat grill on high. Line a baking tray with foil. Arrange the rissoles on the lined tray. Top the rissoles with ham, pasta sauce mixture and cheese. Cook under grill for 3-4 mins or until the cheese melts and rissoles are cooked through. Divide the rissoles, salad leaves and chips among serving plates.
