      Wow! That was one of the best things I've ever made/had in my life. Such a hidden gem. I made few changes. I used regular italian bread instead of ciabatta, pepper jack cheese instead of mozzarella, and I used Speedy Spinach Pesto . It was out of this world delicious! Thank you.

      This was very very good! I had to make some changes because of availability ie, used large portabello rather than cremini and Aroostook's Peasant Bread rather than Ciabatta and made my own pesto because I could not find any in the store. Wonderful. Thank you. Margie
