  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and heat the oil in a large, lidded frying pan. Add the onions, garlic and rosemary with a splash of water, cover, then cook for about 10 mins until soft. Remove the lid, turn up the heat, then cook for a few more mins.

  2. Stir in the peppers, olives and some seasoning. Place the ciabatta halves, facing upwards, on a baking tray. Divide the mixture over the bread, spreading a little to cover. Sprinkle over the cheese, then bake for 10 mins or until the cheese is bubbling. These are delicious with a green salad.

Loved this - I added cooked chicken to my husbands at his request and he really enjoyed it too. Really fast and easy.

Delicious - loved the fact it could be finished in the oven and not under the grill - so much easier to use the timer and leave it, rather than have to watch it. Will try with some anchovies next time.
