    Default Fancy, easy grilled cheese sandwich

    Ingredients:

    * 4 x slices olive bread or 4 slices country bread with 10 pitted and sliced kalamata olives (or wholewheat bread)
    * 1 1/2 tbsp of store bought pesto
    * 4 to 5 tablespoons of creamy chevre (goat cheese)
    * 1 or 2 ripe tomatoes, sliced thickly
    * freshly ground black pepper
    * 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

    1. Spread two pieces of the bread with the pesto. Next spread a generous amount of the chevre over the dip. If using country bread sprinkle on the olives. Layer on the tomatoes and some black pepper. Top with the other two slices of bread. Brush with olive oil and grill in a grill pan or fry in a cast iron skillet or sauté pan. For best results set the heat of the pan to medium.
    2. Cut in half and serve with a flourish!

    I always have a jar in my fridge, home-made or otherwise. I've come home and boiled pasta and put pesto sauce on it with a little fresh Parmesan and pepper and called it dinner more than once. It's also good marinade.

    Pesto is a staple in my pantry too. It's great on lots of things, like smeared on French Bread for a almost but not quite Garlic Bread.

    Favorite use for Pesto besides on pasta is to take about a 1/2 cup and mix it with one can drained Cannellini beans. Put the beans/pesto in a food processor and whirl it into a paste and serve as a dip with crackers or pieces of bread. Very tasty and everyone seems to like it at parties.
