    • 1 dash olive oil
    • 1 small onion, roughly chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, shredded
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    • 2 large tomatoes, chopped (you could easily substitute canned here, and I’m sure it’d work out fine, too)
    • 1 zucchini, cut up
    • 1/2 red bell pepper, roughly cut
    • 1 can white kidney beans (I used 2 cups cooked romano beans in their place…)


    • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs (put one piece of bread in a food processor or blender)
    • 2 cloves garlic, shredded
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil


    1. 1
      I just flavoured this with a bit of salt, but if you had fresh basil, that’d be good, too.
    2. 2
      the recipe called for one bay leaf and some thyme, but I don’t have any around.
    3. 3
      heat oil in a sauce pan, add onions and garlic.
    4. 4
      add balsamic (and if you’ve got some leftover red wine, toss that in there, too), zucchini and pepper, cook until softened.
    5. 5
      add tomatoes, lower heat and simmer 20 min.
    6. 6
      heat oven to 350 F, and grease a baking dish.
    7. 7
      combine the beans with the tomato mixture and pour into the pan.
    8. 8
      mix together crust ingredients and sprinkle overtop.
    9. 9
      bake 30 min.

      This was very, very good. I made it a while back as listed. I loved the crunchy top and great flavor. The balsamic vinegar added a nice twist to this dish. I did use the thyme and bay leaf as well. My only suggestion for next time I make this is that I will peel the red pepper for sure and maybe even the tomatoes. Thanks for posting, #2, great combination.

      This was delicious, and smelled fantastic cooking up. I didn't have peppers on hand and so omitted, used the bay leaf and thyme as suggested. Definitely needs some salt as suggested. I was nervous about the balsamic vinegar, but it was great.
