It's quick, easy and tasty. A few slices of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basils, some basil pesto and a good quality of loaf bread, nothing was complicated. The flavor created by these simple ingredients was quite sophisticated. Too busy or lazy to cook, these easy sandwiches will fill you up with the deliciousness.
