Italian Sandwich

Red, white, and green always make me think of Italy, and mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and basil are a classic combination.

Yield 4 sandwiches
Time 5 minutes
  • Knife
  • Paper towels
  • 4 pieces of focaccia or Italian bread
  • 4 t olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh basil OR several T pesto
Directions Split the bread in half lengthwise and drizzle each piece with olive oil. Cut the garlic in half and rub the cut edge on the bread.

Pat dry the mozzarella, slice, and arrange on bread, then season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and basil or pesto, top with bread, and serve, or wrap up to take on your picnic.

  1. Hi Laura, Your sandwich archives are amazing! Al at the City Hippy was in need of some brown bag lunch ideas yesterday. I was happy to send him, 6 PAGES of links, courtesy of the Veggie Table for sandwiches! that is an impressive list. Al didn’t need that many but now he’s got plenty to chose from.

    Cheers, G
