My garden is still full of basil and I love using it to make basil pesto.  Pesto is so easy to make and is perfect on chicken, pasta and even spread on bread for sandwiches.  I love the combination of basil pesto with the mozzarella cheese and thick slices of a ripe tomato grilled to perfection.  What a meal!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices of bread (my personal favorite is sourdough!)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • prepared basil pesto
  • 4 slices thick of tomato
  • 1/4 slices mozzarella cheese (several slices)

Instructions

  • Assemble the sandwich by spreading each slice of bread with the pesto.
  • Arrange a layer of cheese over the pesto and top with the tomato slices.
  • Finish with another layer of cheese and cover with the other slice of bread.
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat.
  • Add the butter to the pan. When the butter melts, add the sandwich and cover the pan with the lid. Turn the sandwich over after 2-3 minutes to allow the second side to brown.
  • The sandwich is ready when both sides are golden brown and the mozzarella cheese has melted.
