Havarti has a mild flavour even children love.


2 zucchini, sliced lengthwise 1/4-in (1/2 cm) thick and 4-in (10 cm) long
3 plum tomatoes, seeded and quartered
1 tbsp (15 mL) melted butter
2 tsp (10 mL) fresh rosemary, chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
6 oz (180 g) Canadian Havarti, cut into 4 x 1-in (10 cm x 2 1/2 cm) slices


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. Cook 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.


Cheese alternatives: Canadian Medium Cheddar, Monterey Jack.
