"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! What's not to love. I used butter as well as olive oil. Thanks for posting. I'm already looking forward to my next sandwich."
"Wonderful grilled cheese. This is great with the oil and the italian seasoning. Great idea! It was great with my fresh tomatoes. Thanks Rita :) Made for Holiday tag game"
"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."
"This was very tasty! The only change I made was butter instead of oil (I just sprinkled the seasoning on as I was spreading the butter on the bread and it mixed in perfectly). I used Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co "limited edition" Farmhouse cheese. Thanks for sharing Rita!"
"This made for an easy, fresh, tasty lunch today. I used mozzarella cheese and made it on my panini grill. I could see this also being tasty with pesto. Thanks for posting. Made for June 2013 Veggie Swap"
"Made for February Sun and Spice Event and I am soooo glad I did. DH was gone at lunch time and so I made this and used fresh mozzarella cheese and ohhh it melted so nicely and with the herbs it made the sandwich. This is going into my Favorites of 2013."
"I loved this! The spices on the bread makes it taste just like foccacia! I used whole wheat sandwich bread, sharp cheddar cheese, and a little extra oil to cover the slices. I also found that using a george forman grill is a perfect, mess-free way of cooking this panini-style."
"I am stuffing my face with this wonderful sandwich even as I type! Yum! I used pepper jack cheese (just one slice) and the fresh basil is the topper! With a some sliced avocado on the side - I'm in heaven! Thanks for the wonderful recipe, Rita!"
"Made a bunch of these in the broiler tonight for dinner using fresh basil and heirloom tomatoes from our little Farmer's Market and mozzarella cheese. We will definitely have these again...no more plain ol' grilled cheese for us any more! Thanks for posting this very tasty recipe Rita. Made, enjoyed and reviewed for the 12th Veg*n Swap."
"WOW! You have done it again as far as we are concerned. This was wonderful. I am trying some different grilled cheese sandwiches and this was the first one. I doubt the others will be as good, but will try them anyway. Thanks so much for posting. We will make this often and I would give it more stars if I could. I used sliced American cheese and roma tomatoes. YUM. Edited to add that after trying some others, it is still the best. Thanks again."
"this is a delicious and filling sandwich! definitely a keeper. next time..ham and cheese grilled sandwich with sliced apples on the side."
"This was really a good sandwich. I made it with wheat bread and colby jack cheese. I think if I had made it with sourdough bread and mozzerella it would have taken it up even a notch further. I ate it with some tomato-basil soup."
"oh wow, excellent sandwich! So simple and yet so good! I couldn't find fresh basil in the grocery so used the dried basil spices instead. Love the taste of melted cheese with tomatoes and italian spices! Thank you, Rita!"
"I had a craving for a grilled cheese and bumped it up using Provolone, hard salami, tomatoes and basil. Great sandwich Rita! 80} Potzi"
"This is a great switch-up to the regular grilled cheese sandwich (although I do love those too!). The peppery taste of the fresh basil, along with the lovely slices of tomato I got from the local farmer's market really kicked it up. I used American cheese and whole wheat bread. Thanks for a keeper!"
"great pannini/sammie/sandwich! This creative inspiration will inspire you to tweak this anyway you want. I had some jarred marinara...after I brushed the outside part of the sammie with the oil/herb mixture, I then brushed the inside with the marinara. Followed the rest of the instructions using mozzerella and provolone for cheese. Used my sandwich maker to grill. This one would be great if you added cooked bacon or added cooked bacon, deli meat and made it into a club sandwich enclosed in gooey cheese. Oh yeah, we'll be doing this one again baby!"
"Wow, my partner and I couldn't get enough of these sammies! What a tasty way to use the summer tomatoes. I used sliced provolone cheese, and sprinkled the tomatoes with a little salt and pepper, along with dried oregano and thyme. I spread my bread with butter though. Cannot wait to have these again!"
"OMG,,my husband ate 3 of these and could have had another if there had been any left!! The olive oil, I used Lemon Olive Oil, gave the bread such a delicious crust, I did add some butter to the pan as we like the extra flavor. he rated it 10 stars."
"Great sandwich! Did mine on rye with brie cheese!"
