This has become a definite favorite of ours. Pesto, peppers and french bread all make it irresistible! I got this out of a spin-off magazine from Taste of Home called Simple and Delicious. It truly lives up to the name of the magazine being both simple and delicious:)
1 each yellow, orange, and red pepper, julienned
1 medium onion, halved and sliced
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning (I usually just use a mix of oregano, basil and seasoning salt)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup (4 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese (I use double, half for mixing with the peppers and half for topping the bread with before putting it in the oven)
1 loaf unsliced Italian bread
1/3 cup prepared pesto
* In a large skillet, saute the peppers onion and Italian seasoning in oil until tender.
*Remove from the heat; toss with cheese.
*Cut bread in half lengthwise; place on a baking sheet. Spread cut sides of bread with pesto.
*Top with pepper mixture and remaining cheese (if desired). Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5-8 minutes or until cheese is melted.
This great as an appetizer, cut into 10 or so slices. Or if you are like my husband and I, we cut each side into halves and have at it:)
