This is a quick easy and delish dish that you can make for anytime of day. I happened to make it for my lunch today and wanted to share it with you.
What you will need...
- Whole Wheat sandwich thins
- Pesto with Basil Spread
- Fresh Tomato's
- Slice of Mozzarella Cheese
- Fresh Spinach
- Garlic Salt (optional)
- Butter ( I used - Can't Believe it's not Butter )
Let's start building the sandwich... mmmmm!!!
Start by spreading a thin layer of the Pesto with Basil spread on both sides of your sandwich thins. Add some spinach to the bottom bread. I just grabbed a small handful. Add about 3 slices of tomato. Next is the mozzarella cheese and lastly sprinkle a very small amount of garlic salt on top of the cheese. Top with the other slice of pesto covered bread.
If you have a panini press you can use that to heat this up. It's quick and heats the whole sandwich evenly. Otherwise you can heat this up in the oven. If your heating in the oven you do not need the butter. Since I used my panini press I just spread a very small amount to the outer part of the sandwich to help in the grilling.
