> 8 slices whole grain bread
> olive oil cooking spray
> 2 heirloom tomatoes
> 1 (8 oz) ball fresh mozzarella
> 1 cup basil pesto


Spray one side of each slice of bread with olive oil spray and set aside. Slice the tomatoes and the mozzarella and set aside. Spread pesto on 1 side of each slice and top with tomato and mozzarella. Top with the remaining slices.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the sandwiches until the cheese begins to melt and bread turns golden and crispy, about 4 min., turning once. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.


Revive packaged pesto by whizzing with fresh basil and a splash of olive oil.
Like it spicy? Spread 1 half with pesto and the other with chipotle mayo.
