I’m all about quick and easy dinners these days. I’ve been trying a lot of new recipes that are quick and this is one of my favorite. It’s also perfect for a quick and yummy lunch. I love how simple it is. Bread with pesto spread on top, sliced tomato and mozzarella cheese. So very simple but tastes so amazing.
Pesto, Mozzarella & Tomato Grilled Cheese
Sandwich bread (or about any other type)
Mozzarella cheese, sliced
Set skillet to medium heat. Assemble sandwich by spreading pesto on each piece of bread. Top with sliced tomato and season with salt and pepper. Layer on the mozzarella and top with a piece of bread. Drizzle olive oil over skillet’s surface and place sandwiches on the hot skillet.
Place another heavy skillet over the top to form a “press.” Turn after 2 to 3 minutes and replace weight. The sandwich is ready when golden brown and mozzarella has melted around the edges.
This sounds similar to the Zupa’s grown-up grilled cheese (which is one of my favorites). I think the only difference is that they have munster cheese. So yummy on cold weather days!
