"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

prepared basil pesto sauce
sourdough bread, lightly toasted
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
shredded smoked mozzarella cheese
This in just like the sandwich my local pizza place makes, only they add a pounded chicken breast. I eat at least one a week!
I really thought I would love this bc I often make sandwiches just like this all the time with cheese and tomato. I don't know if I wasn't as hungry as I thought or what, though, bc I ate only half the sandwich. I toasted everything except the lettuce and let the cheese melt, then topped with lettuce. I left out the mayo (can't stand it) and used sun dried tomato pesto. Something, though, didn't hit it for me. Maybe the lettuce? Thanks for the recipe!
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 sometimes add other tasty veggies like thinly sliced red onion, bell pepper and chopped artichoke hearts. It's even good if you only have regular (not smoked) mozzarella on hand. YUM!
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\marinara. Thanks.
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 added the lettice & tomato. Its good!!!
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 sauces like mayo etc. thank you veggigoddess for your recipe.
I loved this! I didn't use a sourdough but used a Paleo homemade sandwich bread, plus homemade mayo, and chose to leave off the provolone, that's a ton of raw cheese together lol! I really did enjoy it though, 5 stars :)
