Tomato Pesto Grilled Cheese

Ingredients

Artisan bread
Pesto
Heirloom tomatoes, peeled and sliced thickly*
Mozzarella (or cheese of your preference)

Directions

Preheat oven on Broil.  Spread pesto on bread.  Top with tomatoes and cheese.  Run under broiler until cheese melts.  Top with basil, if desired, for a prettier presentation.

*For easy peeled tomatoes: Cut an "x" on the bottom of each tomato you want peeled. Bring enough water to cover tomatoes to a boil. Drop the tomatoes in the boiling water for 30 - 60 seconds, just long enough to heat up the skin. Remove and put in a bowl of ice water (so it doesn't cook). The skin will probably break, but if not, it will have curled up a bit where you cut the "x."  With a knife pull up on the skin. Voila. The skin will slide right off the entire tomato.
