The quick and delicious recipe for pesto and grilled mozzarella

Lovers of melted cheese, we have found the recipe that will make you forget about yet another rainy weekend: that of grilled cheese, pesto and mozzarella. Mamma Mia, you will tell us the news!

Cheese is one of my great culinary passions. But when raclette season ends, I sometimes have trouble satisfying it if I want to avoid resorting to traditional pizza.

Luckily someone in this world invented grilled cheese. Even more delicious than the local croque-monsieur, the grilled cheese comes from the United States and is made up of two slices of toasted bread browned in a pan with, inside, Very cheese (and incidentally other ingredients).


If you're a fan of Madmoizelle's recipes, you may have noticed ours light tropism for Italian cuisine. So it won't surprise you that we concocted a grilled cheese recipe for you using pesto, mozzarella and fresh tomatoes.

The ingredients for the Italian grilled cheese (for two people)

  • 4 slices of bread for sandwiches
  • 2 tablespoons of pesto
  • 1 nice ball of mozzarella (buffalo mozzarella if possible)
  • 2 firm-fleshed cherry tomatoes (Roma type, for example)

Italian grilled cheese recipe

  • Spread the pesto on one side of the four slices of bread
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes into thin slices, do the same with the mozzarella
  • Arrange the tomato and mozzarella on a slice of bread, then add the rocket leaves. Close with a second slice of bread to form a sandwich. Repeat the operation with the two remaining slices of bread.
