LASAGNA GRILLED CHEESE {yes you heard right}

makes 2 sandwiches

4 slices of bread that you love

2 tablespoons unsalted butter with a dash of olive oil

1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

salt and pepper to taste

one 14-ounce can cherry tomatoes (you’ll have extra tomatoes left over)

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

extra salt and pepper for seasoning

Lay out bread slices.

In a medium skillet or nonstick pan, melt butter over medium-low heat.

In a small bowl stir together ricotta, basil, salt and pepper.

Top each slice of bread with a bit of mozzarella cheese.  Top two of the bread slices with a few smashed cherry tomatoes.  Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.  On the remaining two slices of bread, dollop and spread the ricotta cheese.

Combine the sandwich halves and place in the warmed skillet.  Grill on each side until golden.  Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 3 minutes before slicing in half and serving.  Dang that’s good!
