Other sandwiches I love that don’t require heating up are Prosciutto Arugula and Balsamic Sandwich, Greek Salad Sandwich and Open Faced Heirloom Tomato Sandwich.

I live two blocks away from a really great Italian ravioli store called Pastosa. Aside from the best homemade raviolis they carry an amazing array of fresh breads from Brooklyn, homemade fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, and lots of other temping goodies. It’s actually dangerous walking in there as all their mouth watering goodies are displayed right there in front of you.

Today I had a plan and didn’t stray, I picked up some roasted peppers, tomatoes, a wonderful whole wheat loaf and fresh mozzarella, sliced thin (great trick to keep yourself from using too much as it is not low in fat!) I came home and picked some basil from my garden and put this delicious and satisfying lunch together.

  1. This was sooo yummy. I ended up toasting the roll and adding some olive oil to each piece directly. Excellent. One of my new favorites, thank you.

  13. nothing better than Pastosa……Oceanside? I used to go to the Valley Stream one all the time…ahhhh memories…

  14. You could heat it up in a panini press!

  15. This is a good substitute to Panera Bread's "tomato mozzarella panini"!

  16. It's like a bruschetta sandwich. Surely there could be nothing bad about this. Yumm. 🙂

  26. I love this sandwich! Fresh mozzarella can be a dangerous thing for me, my boyfriend is a cook in an Italian cafe and likes to bring it home often, but this is a perfect and healthy way to use it! And it's a good thing the Brooklyn Pastosa is only a short ride away from me! I love that store, such classic Italian deliciousness!

  27. The perfect summer sandwich. Beautiful!

  28. This is my all time favorite sandwich. I like adding a little pesto to the bread and top with mozzarella cheese,basil leaves, tomatoes and roasted red pepper. I heat it so it gets melty and there is lunch or dinner.
