Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).

On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread out the zucchini slices on one side and the tomato quarters on the other. Sprinkle with melted butter and rosemary; season with salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes.

Remove skin from tomatoes then place in a bowl. Crush with a fork.

Alternate zucchini and Havarti slices in layers while the zucchini is hot, so that the cheese softens.

Serve with the crushed tomatoes.


Cheese alternatives: Canadian Medium Cheddar, Monterey Jack.
