Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Sandwiches were my friend this past summer. They're quick to prepare on busy summer days and the flavor varieties are endless. This Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich combines my favorite cheese -fresh mozzarella - with basil pesto. I had tons of basil this year in my garden, which was often turned into Skinny Basil Pesto. Even with just two simple filling ingredients, this Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich is super flavorful and fresh.

What are your favorite sandwich varieties?

·2 slices of Udi’s gluten free sandwich bread
·2 tsp basil pesto
·1 slice of fresh mozzarella cheese

Assemble the sandwich by spreading the basil pesto on one piece of bread, top with cheese and the second slice of bread. Butter both sides of the sandwiches and place in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes, flip the sandwiches and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately.
