Recipe by Rita1652

This is a low good fat version of a grilled cheese seasoned with fresh and dried herbs and garden fresh tomatoes. I used a regular pan but for ease you can use a nonstick pan.

Yum! What's not to love. I used butter as well as olive oil. Thanks for posting. I'm already looking forward to my next sandwich.
