Tuna, basil pesto, tomatoes & melted mozzarella. How could you get any better than that? This isn't really a recipe, more of a guidline. Experiment with whatever you've got on hand. I'm eating this sandwich right now with pepperoncinis on the side. Yum! :)

  10. * i make my own basil pesto, garlic, lemon juice, parmesan & olive oil. I make it thick like a paste and not a sauce. Sometimes I or cilantro, and feta cheese just to give it a bigger flavor.
