"Perfectly simple! I used whole wheat bread. The freshness of the tomato offsets the richness of the pesto and cheese. This is the perfect taste of Italy and would be delicious paired with soup during the colder months."

"I made this with whole wheat bread. I also added sliced turkey and ham and then used my panini maker. It was very good."
