How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the top third off the loaf of bread and scoop out 2 cups of bread from the bottom section. (saved scooped bread for croutons or bread crumbs later). Put the two pieces of bread on a baking sheet, cut sides up. Bake about 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.
  • In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, mozzarella, peppers and pine nuts. When bread is toasted, brush cut sides with pesto and spoon the tomato mixture into the bottom section. Put the top section on and wrap the whole loaf with foil. Bake wrapped loaf about 30 minutes or until warmed through. Unwrap and cut loaf into 4 or 6 wedges; serve immediately.

    Can't wait to try this! The only thing is I haven't been able to find good fresh tomatoes since leaving New Orleans. They grow Creoles there that are really delicious. I'm definately spoiled! C.J.
