I picked up this loaf at Trader Joes on a Saturday morning because I was in a carb mood. I opened the noisy artisan sourdough bag and out came this baby, isn’t it beautiful? So, I cut it up and made a grilled cheese. We were celebrating a friend’s birthday that night, and we needed some sustenance.

Pesto, smoked mozzarella and tomato grilled cheese sandwich – a simple Italian twist on a classic. Next time, I’m making the bread and pesto from scratch and using heirloom tomatoes instead. Stay tuned!
