Oh my - what a sandwich! I lightly toasted the bread first. I had some fresh garden tomatoes that I put a little kosher salt and cracked black pepper onto before broiling. I also used a combination of mozzarella and fontina cheeses. I don't even think the pesto is necessary so if you don't like it don't use it and you'll still have a great sandwich that let's the tomato shine.

Just made this for lunch and it was delicious! It looked just as great as it tasted too. I may salt the tomatoes a little after broiling next time, but that'd be the only thing I would change. YUM!

This is awesome when I find myself with no time to cook - for the non-vegetarians in my family; I simply add their favorite meat!
