Roasted Veggie Pesto Bread

 Slice open a French loaf of bread. 
Spread on some pesto and ricotta cheese. 
Pile on some roasted veggies, maybe some grilled chicken. 
Sprinkle a little cheese on top. 
Pop it into the oven to heat through.
Dinner is served!

Roasted Veggie Pesto Bread
adapted from Budget Bites

1 loaf French Bread
Ricotta cheese
roasted veggies (I used zucchini, carrots, onion on this day)
grilled chicken
mozzarella cheese

Slice loaf in half length-wise and place on baking sheet
Spread each side with 2-3 T pesto
Spread about a 1/2 c of ricotta cheese on top of pesto
Combine grilled chicken and roasted veggies (pine nuts would be good, too!) and divide evenly between the two halves
Top with mozzarella cheese
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 min or until heated through and cheese is melted.
