Mozzarella Grilled Cheese

It is cheesy. Melty. Flavorful.  Rich. Crispy. DELICIOUS! I want to eat it every day for the rest of my life!

A PINTEREST inspired Recipe

You Will Need

{4} slices bread {I used fresh baked Rosemary bread from NOVAS Bakery}
{½} lb fresh mozzarella, sliced thick
{1} large tomatoes, cut into thick slices
{1} cup basil pesto {I used the store-bought stuff}
Freshly ground black pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil

Assemble sandwich by smearing insides of bread slices with pesto. 

 Arrange a layer of mozzarella slices and season with a few turns of fresh pepper. 

Layer the tomato slices over the top and then place another piece of bread on top to make the sandwich. 

Drizzle olive oil over skillet's surface and place sandwiches on the hot skillet or panini press. {If using a 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.
