Definitely a five star! Used havarti so my cheese was definitely melted in 15 minutes at 425. The only foccacia the store had was topped with jalapenos, tomatoes, cheese, and mushrooms so it was really an AWESOME lunch. A repeater for sure plus easy, thank you for posting.

This was nummy, easy, and fast! After reading the comments, I put mine in for 15 minutes, not 10, and it could probably use another 5 or 10. The sandwich was heated through, and the bread was crispy, but the cheese wasn't melted. But, I didn't have to wait for it to cool before serving to my kids, either. :) Great recipe, gobbled up by everyone, reminded me of sandwiches I got in fancy downtown delis when I worked there. Thanks for posting!

The pesto sauce adds a nice extra taste to this for a wonderful hot sandwich. After 10 minutes in the oven, mine was not heated through. Next time, I will probably bake it at a lower temperature for a longer period of time.
