Smoked Mozzarella and Pesto Sandwich

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars
31

"Just made this for myself and it was so amazing that I had to share my recipe! Use fresh smoked mozzarella and not the American version of that stiff mozzarella. Can be found in gourmet and specialty shops. I also add Provolone, but havarti, Swiss or yogurt cheese can also be used. You can make just one sandwich or use a long sourdough or French roll for a semi-large gathering."

Very good! This makes a fantastic panini if you leave off the lettuce and brush the assembled sandwich very lightly with extra virgin olive oil before grilling to a nice golden brown. We somet...

Great idea. I didn't use tomato and lettuce. Instead I added black olives and heated the entire thing to melt the cheese. Next time I'll try adding more pesto sauce or maybe a bit of pizza\marin...

I loved it! But I may be partial. I'm a big fan of cheese. I put on everything but the lettice & tomato & brushed it with olive oil & grilled it on my George Forman grill like a panini, then I a...

Add a little balsamic vinegar before you close the Sandwich... It adds a lot more flavor!!

Yum, yum and more yum. These were great sandwiches. I had to use gluten free while grain bread but otherwise followed this to the letter. The whole family loved using pesto instead of fattening ...
