Dinner ready in 20 minutes! Enjoy classic grilled tomato and cheese sandwich with an Italian twist - a wonderful meal.
ciabatta sandwich rolls
tablespoons olive oil
cup basil pesto
slices mozzarella cheese
medium tomato, cut into 8 thin slices
Heat closed contact grill 5 minutes.
Cut each roll in half horizontally; brush outside of each half with oil. Spread pesto on inside of both halves. Layer each sandwich with cheese and tomato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
When grill is heated, place sandwiches on grill. Close grill; grill 4 minutes or until bread is toasty and cheese is melted. Slice sandwiches on diagonal and serve warm.
If you can’t find ciabatta rolls, you can substitute focaccia or 8 slices of country bread.
This sandwich is especially delicious when made with large beefsteak tomatoes at their peak of ripeness. When ripe tomatoes are not available, try using chopped cherry tomatoes. They are more reliably flavorful no matter what the season.
Fresh mozzarella can be used instead of the slices.
