This is a wonderful sandwich!! I was making myself a grilled cheese sandwich about a week ago, and decided to get a little creative with it. It came out spectacular. This is a nice change from your average grilled cheese :-) AND DONT BE AFRAID TO TRY IT! Even if you dont like spinach, try the sandwich.. its great!!!

Yummy! I also put mine in the oven just for health's sake. Oh, and I added some fresh basil and spicy mustard. Very tasty lunch!
