Tomato and Mozzarella Sandwich with Pesto

Posted by Annie.

This easy sandwich incorporates the homemade pesto found here. (Should you not feel up to making this fabulous version, I suppose you could substitute something from the grocery store that was made weeks ago…)

Although vegetarian, this sandwich passes the carnivore/man test. My roommate is both a male and from Argentina (read: loves meat) and he loves it. It’s perfect for lunch, or as a half sandwich with soup.

What you’ll need:

Baguette, Sliced Tomato, Sliced Fresh Mozzarella, Arugula or Mixed Greens, Pesto, Salt and Pepper to Taste, Olive oil – only if you want to grill the bread before – it’s not necessary

What to do:

Slice a baguette open lengthwise and brush the cut side of the bread with olive oil. Broil or grill until lightly toasted. Spread the inside of the baguette with the pesto, then layer sliced tomatoes, sliced fresh mozzarella, arugula and salt and pepper to taste.

    We made these last night and they were wonderful! If I was doing it again, I’d half the garlic and pepper in the pesto recipe. It was a bit strong for some of the sensitive stomachs here.
