Made this Italian grilled cheese with 15-minute tomato soup (see the linked recipe below) for lunch, and what more can I say other than delicious. Grilled cheese and tomato soup are a classic pair, so it always a winner.

Spread a small handful of the mozzarella cheese over each slice.

Top with the remaining 6 slices of bread.

Mix together the butter and garlic powder, brush some over the tops of the sandwiches, or spread with the back of a tablespoon.

Sprinkle with dried oregano.

Place baking sheet under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.

Remove pan from oven, flip sandwiches, and brush the other sides with butter, and sprinkle with oregano.

Return to the broiler, and cook until golden, about 2 minutes.

Cut sandwiches in half diagonally, and serve immediately with vodka sauce on the side for dipping.
