Pesto Tomato Soup and Pesto Grilled Cheese
This was classic comfort food, with a sophisticated twist. The soup and the sandwich were both super delicious, I think I have found my fave grilled cheese and tomato soup combo now. I made this tomato soup, eliminating the crouton toppers, using my spinach pesto in place of the jarred stuff, adding 1 tsp of black pepper, and changing the heavy cream to fat-free half and half. I won't insult your intelligence by telling you how to make a grilled cheese, but for ingredients I used plain whole wheat sandwich bread, spread on each side with my spinach pesto, and accompanied by sliced part-skim mozzarella, and slices of fresh tomato.
