Pesto & Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese with Pesto

Grilled cheese with soup or a salad makes a quick, easy lunch but its also easy to become bored with.  We like to try variations of the typical American cheese version.  One of our favorites is mozzarella, pesto, tomatoe and whole grain bread.   Sometimes I will add a slice of tomato and a little basil in there.

What is your favorite sandwich?
