From I seldom have sliced mozzarella cheese on hand and used shredded when I prepared this.


  1. Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Steam, covered, 2 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Preheat broiler.
  3. Combine mayonnaise and pesto in a bowl, and stir with a whisk.
  4. Spread 2 tablespoons pesto mixture onto 1 side of each bread slice.
  5. Layer each slice with 8 asparagus spears, 1 ham slice, 2 tomato slices, and 1 cheese slice.
  6. Place on a baking sheet; broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
  7. Sprinkle with pepper.
