Ingredients

2 slices of bread, variety of your choice
2 slices of Swiss cheese
1 tbsp Valicenti Arugula & Pistachio Pesto (more to taste)
2 slices of heirloom tomato
2-3 tbsp butter, at room temperature and softened

Method

Place a frying pan over medium heat, then melt a tablespoon of butter over the surface, making sure it’s well covered. Next, lay a slice of bread on the pan.

Layer with slices of cheese, then spread pesto, and add slices of tomato. Have the second slice of bread ready with a spread of butter over one surface.

 

Check for when the bottom side is golden brown, then add second slice to the sandwich, butter side up, and flip the whole.

Once the second surface is golden brown, remove from heat and serve.

Serves 1.

(Optional, serve along with a cup of tomato soup, garnished with a basil leaf)
