Ingredients

1/3 cup (80 mL) butter
2 tbsp (30 mL) basil pesto sauce
3 cups (750 mL) whole wheat bread, coarsely-chopped
4 small zucchini, cut in 1/4-inch (6-mm) slices
2 cups (500 mL) fresh corn kernels
1/3 cup (80 mL) chopped red bell pepper
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) grated Canadian Mozzarella cheese

Preparation

Melt 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter in a large saucepan; stir in pesto. Add torn bread and toss to coat. Set aside.

Melt remaining 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter in a large non-stick frypan over medium-high heat until foamy. Add zucchini, corn, red pepper and garlic. Stir fry 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer vegetables to a shallow ovenproof casserole and sprinkle cheese over top.

Scatter buttered bread pieces over cheese. Broil 5 inches (12 cm) from grill for 4 minutes or until topping is crisp and golden brown.

Variation: Substitute sun-dried tomato pesto for basil pesto. Replace Canadian Mozzarella with Canadian Swiss cheese.
