Cooking Light recently posted yet another simple way to keep your lunches interesting by suggesting the combination of Marinara & Mozzarella Grilled Cheese that further led to creating a Caprese & Pesto Grilled Cheese. Both were incredible and offer a great alternative to your traditional options for any college student living off-campus or on their own.
Other grilled sandwich ideas to keep your tastebuds happy that you might want to try this weekend include Challah Cheddar Grilled Cheese with Green Apples & Jalapeño or the awesome Grilled PB & J Sandwich featured when I just started this blog!
