Melted mozzarella makes these sandwiches great fun for pulling apart. Pair them with classic tomato soup dressed up with tender tortellini and pesto.
- 2 cups frozen cheese tortellini
- 2 (14.5-ounce) cans tomato soup
- 1/2 cup half-and-half
- 1 tablespoon prepared basil pesto
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
- 8 slices country style bread
- 8 mozzarella slices
- 2 ripe tomatoes sliced thinly
Prepare tortellini according to package directions. Heat soup in a large saucepan and add cooked tortellini, half-and-half and pesto. Simmer on low 5-10 minutes while you prepare sandwiches.
Spread butter on both sides of bread slices. Place two slices of mozzarella and a couple tomato slices on one slice of bread and top with another slice of bread. Place sandwich in a skillet over medium high heat and brown each side until golden and cheese in center has melted.
