Ingredients

2 Tolive oil
1 onion (small, thinly sliced)
2 zucchini (medium)
2 clvgarlic (minced)
6 plum tomatoes (peeled, seeded, and diced)
1 tthyme (fresh, or 1/2 tsp dried)

1 baguette (sliced into about 20 sliced)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450F. Heat oil in large heavy skillet over medium flame. Cook onion,stirring occasionally, until soft. Meanwhile, halve the zucchini lengthwise and slice into 1/4-inch thick half-moons. When onion is soft add zucchini and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is just tender. Add tomatoes and thyme and cook about 2 minutes more. Add wine or broth, and salt and pepper to taste and simmer until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and allow mixture to cool. Drain any accumulated moisture. Arrange bread slices on baking sheet and toast in preheated oven until very lightly colored, about 4 minutes. Mound about 2 tablespoons of zucchini mixture on each toast and sprinkle with a bit of the cheese. Return to oven until cheese is melted and beginning to brown a bit.

Notes

Use larger slices of a rustic bread and serve as an open-faced dinner sandwich.
