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! This makes a great meal! I made using thick slices of sourdough bread, mozzarella cheese and heirloom tomatoes. The olive oil and Italian seasoning on the toasted outside is a tasty touch. Thanks for the post.
