    Step 1 Cook the rice and allow to slightly cool.

    Step 2 Make the pesto (I chose basil but you can use any green pesto of choice.

    Step 3 When the rice has cooled, make sure there is not extra water, if so drain the rice.

    Step 4 Mix the pesto into the rice.

    Step 5 Using a pastry ring, fill the lower 1/4 with the “green” rice.

    Step 6 Place a layer of the zucchini over the rice and then another layer of rice, followed with a second layer of zucchini.

    Step 7 I topped the tower with rice, and garnished with a tomato and a few chives.

    Step 8 However, if you wish, it is also pretty topped with a layer of zucchini and garnish of choice.
