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.
Ingredients

fat free mayonnaise

3 Tbsp

store-bought pesto sauce

1½ Tbsp

sourdough bread

8 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 cheese

6 oz, thinly sliced

romaine lettuce

¼ cup(s), shredded, about 4 leaves

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and pesto.
  2. 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.
