Mozzerella/Pesto Grilled Cheese

I recently saw this sandwich on Pintrest and started salivating on the spot.  I knew I would just love it.  I still recommend that you visit Pintrest if you have a little extra time.  It is addicting but I have found some of my favorite new "everythings" on there.  After finding this yummy grilled sandwich on Pintrest, I was then linked to a new blog (at least to me) An Edible Symphony.  Come to find out, this is a Tyler Florence Recipe from the Food Network.  Tyler uses homemade pesto but I was in a hurry to enjoy this sandwich so I went for the prepared pesto find in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.

I LOVE this sandwich.  I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this sandwich.  I think I would eat it every day..... until I got tired of it.  My hubby wasn't home but I know he would love it too. The girls ate it - minus the tomato - and also enjoyed it.

Please visit both of the above mentioned sites as I did mine a little differently.  Also, the information listed below is based on just one sandwich - MINE!  :)

Mozzerella/Pesto Grilled Cheese  (adapted from An Edible Symphony and The Food Network

2 slices of Sliced Tuscan bread from Target
1/8 cup prepared Pesto - or more to taste
1 small Roma tomato
1 Slice fresh Mozzarella
slices of fresh avocado

Heat Panani grill or I just used my trusty George Foreman Grill.   Spread one of the slices with pesto, top with mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes and avocado.  Top with other slice of bread.  Brush top of sandwich lightly with olive oil.  Add to grill and heat until toasted and heated through.
