Caprese Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Aren't you tired of same old same old lunch? Me too. So I have all the ingredients in the fridge and thought to make sandwich out of it and Voila, this sandwich was born. With a cup of orange juice and you are good to go .

  • 4 slices bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella, room temperature, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 large ripe tomato, room temperature, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • salt and pepper to taste
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
Brush the outside of each slice of bread with oil, spread the pesto on the inside, place the mozzarella on the pesto on of one slice of bread, top with the tomato, season with salt and pepper and finally top the other slice of bread pesto side in.
Add the sandwich and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.
