This recipe for mozzarella and red pesto grilled cheese is a great spin on traditional grilled cheese with a bit of an Italian twist!
Years ago, I saw Tyler Florence (who I have a bit of a foodie crush on) make a Mozzarella & Green Pesto Grilled Cheese. It looked delicious and I created my own version of that sandwich using chicken as well (which I really need to share with you). Last week, I made my recipe for Angel Hair with Red Pesto Sauce and thought this would be a great spin on Tyler’s original recipe. It was ooey-gooey and unbelievably good! The pesto makes the difference and I have made with both olive oil and butter. They were both so good that I couldn’t choose which was better so I included them both in the recipe details. You can also add cooked chicken breast slices to this recipe as well. I promise to do the green pesto & chicken sandwich soon! For now, this one is incredible so I hope you enjoy!
