Italian Vegetable Melt
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
2 individual French or Italian loaves, about 6 to 7 inches long
2 tablespoons clear Italian salad dressing
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
1/2 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
1/2 small green sweet pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2 teaspoon bottled minced garlic or 1 clove garlic, minced
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
1-1/2 cups shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese (6 ounces)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Split bread in half horizontally. Place halves on baking sheet, cut side up.
In a 10-inch skillet or wok heat the salad dressing. Add onion, zucchini, green pepper, and garlic. Stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in tomato. Sprinkle half of the provolone or mozzarella cheese on bread halves. Spoon vegetable mixture on cheese; sprinkle with remaining provolone or mozzarella and the Parmesan cheese.
Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat about 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
