A Sandwich for The Lovely Wife
The Lovely Wife enjoys her Pesto and recently when Michael made Pesto, there was a good bit leftover. Another thing that The Lovely Wife enjoys is a good sandwhich - not white bread for her though!
Also quite recently, over lunch at work, I had enjoyed a roasted vegetable sandwich that had pesto as its base and then roasted capsicum, mushroom and eggplant. I had mentioned this to The Lovely Wife. She remembered what I had told her and asked if I could do something similar.
Well, as it was, there was no eggplant nor mushroom nor much of any other vegetable in the fridge besides capsicum. So... I pan roasted some capsicum, spread the bread with pesto and then sprinkled grated cheddar cheese all over it. I considered toasting the bread but The Lovely Wife said it looked great as it was - not to mention the fact that she was hungry!
A simple enough dish to make and tasty to boot! Any roasted vegetable would go well with this and I reckon that just a plain pesto sandwich would be just as good! Sometimes its quite remarkable how something so simple can be so good...
