Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Servings: 2

Is there a better time to enjoy perfectly ripe tomatoes smothered in melted cheese along with some fresh homemade basil pesto in a sandwich that is grilled to perfection?

4 slices whole wheat bread or sourdough
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons basil pesto
1 ball fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 large ripe tomato, sliced 1/4 inch thick
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
2. Brush the outside of each slice of bread with oil, spread the pesto on the inside, place the mozzarella on the pesto on one slice of bread, top with the tomato, season with salt and pepper, and finally top the other slice of bread, pesto side in.
3. Add the sandwich and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.
