Italian Grilled CheeseINGREDIENTS
1 loaf ciabatta bread
1/4 cup pesto
4 oz goat cheese
1 cup shredded Gouda
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes, julienned
1/4 cup roasted red peppers, julienned
Slice ciabatta bread in half (this is hard because it's a thin bread)
Spread a thin layer of pesto on both halves
Crumble goat cheese over the pesto
Top the bottom half of the ciabatta with the sundried tomatoes and roasted red peppers
Sprinkle both halves with shredded Gouda
Bake in a 350F oven for 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and the exposed ciabatta is crisping up
Flip top half on to bottom half, and bake for 5 more minutes, until the top is crispy and just barely starts browning.
Cut into 1 1/2" slices and serve. I love pesto and prefer it as it is, but it would go well drizzled with a little Italian Dressing as well.
