Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese

Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese is filled with basil pesto fresh mozzarella, and roasted red peppers. It is the perfect summer sandwich!


  • 2 ciabatta rolls
  • 1/3 cup Mezzetta Roasted Red Bell Peppers
  • 4-6 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 TBS prepared basil pesto
  • 1 TBS mayonnaise
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves
  • olive oil for brushing on rolls
  • ground black pepper
  • pinch of salt


  1. Heat grill to medium heat.

  2. To assemble sandwiches: open each roll, spread some basil pesto and mayo on each side of the bun (insides), add a cheese slice, half the roasted red peppers, half the basil leaves, another cheese slice (or 2), sprinkle salt and pepper, and close the top basil/mayo side down. Repeat for second sandwich.

  3. Brush olive oil on the outsides of the rolls. Place sandwich onto the grill, and close the lid. Cook for 2-4 minutes with the heat on medium - you don't want the sandwich to burn. Flip sandwich over, and cook another 2 minutes or so. Remove from grill.

  4. Allow to cool a few minutes, then slice in half and enjoy!
