Easy and very yummy! I love the addition of fresh basil! :)
I make sandwiches and quesadillas this same way, but I do use a bit or oil or butter. My daughter especially loves them! Roxygirl
I've used a variety of cheeses to make this sandwich, and I've used dried basil when I didn't have fresh. It's always good!
