Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).

On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread out the zucchini slices on one side and the tomato quarters on the other.

Sprinkle with melted butter and rosemary; season with salt and pepper.

Roast in the oven for 15 minutes.

Remove skin from tomatoes then place in a bowl. Crush with a fork.

Alternate zucchini and Havarti slices in layers while the zucchini is hot, so that the cheese softens.

Serve with the crushed tomatoes.
