Mozzarella, Red Pepper and Pesto Sandwich
- Total Time
To lighten up this classic sandwich, we thinned out high-fat pesto with fat-free mayonnaise — it cut calories, but still resulted in incredible flavor.
fat free mayonnaise3 Tbsp
store-bought pesto sauce1 ½ Tbsp
sourdough bread8 oz, about 1 small baguette, cut into 4 equal pieces
roasted red peppers (packed in water)1 oz, or 2 pieces, thinly sliced
part-skim mozzarella cheese6 oz, thinly sliced
romaine lettuce¼ cup(s), shredded, about 4 leaves
- In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and pesto.
- Halve baguette pieces horizontally and spread mayonnaise mixture on both sides. Top bottom halves with equal amounts of mozzarella, red peppers and lettuce. Cover with remaining bread halves and serve.
