Ingredients
 

  • 1 large cottage loaf
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium courgette, sliced thinly
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely crushed
  • 150 g jarred roasted red and yellow peppers
  • 1 red pesto
  • 2 beef tomatoes, sliced, not too thinly
  • 4 large Buffalo Mozzarella

Instructions
 

  • Pre heated oven 200C gas 6.
  • Heat the olive oil and add the courgette slices, sauté to take a little colour.
  • At the end, sauté the garlic briefly and add to the courgettes.
  • Slice the mozzarella into 4 thick slices.
  • Cut the loaf into 5 slices horizontally.
  • Lay each slice onto a chopping board.
  • Spoon over the olive oil evenly on the sliced bread, then season each slice with salt and pepper.
  • On the large base slice of bread, lay half the peppers and tomatoes on top, spread over a little pesto.
  • Place the next slice of bread on top. Press down, lay the courgettes on top with half the mozzarella and add a little more pesto.
  • Lay the next slice of bread on top and add the rest of the tomatoes and peppers, spread over a little more pesto.
  • Top with the next slice of bread.
  • Finally, add the rest of the courgettes and mozzarella and the last of the pesto.
  • Top with the final crust.
  • Place the loaf onto a very large piece of foil and wrap the loaf totally.
  • Wrap in a second large piece of foil and squeeze nice and tightly.
  • Place onto a baking tray and pop into the oven.
  • Cook for 30-40 minutes.
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven. Again press nice and tightly, be quite brutal here: the more you press, the better the chilled loaf will cut the next day.
  • Cool and chill well, best overnight.
  • The next day, remove from the fridge and take on your picnic.
  • Open and slice to order, it's as easy as that.
