Meatless Monday 9: Sage and Italian Cheese Grilled Sandwich


I've been in Arizona over the weekend, and a friend had this delicious sandwich at the Aji spa.  We recreated it at her home, thumbs up!

Sage and Italian Cheese Grilled Sandwich
Hearty whole wheat bread (we used Tuscan Whole Wheat Pane from Trader Joe's)
Fontina cheese
Shaved parmigiano-reggiano cheese
Fresh tomato (in AZ they are now in season!)
Sage leaves
Dill springs (our addition to the sandwich)
Pesto
Butter or olive oil

Spread a light layer of pesto on both slices of bread.  Layer:  Fontina, fresh tomato, sage, dill, shaved parmigiano-reggiano.  Grill in butter or olive oil, like a grilled cheese sandwich.  Delicious!

This sounds so good. Trader Joe's is finally coming to town ... have to wait a few more months, but something tells me I'll enjoy Joe's when it finally gets here!

This sounds and looks so yummy! I will have to remember this. The tomatoes also look wonderful.

Steph's home version was even better than the spa original! P.S. Your sautéed zuchini the next day came out perfectly, too!
