The Rosalie: Asiago Grilled Cheese with Roasted Carrots and Pesto

servings
2-3
sandwiches

Ingredients










Cooking Instructions

1

Heat oven to 450°F.


2

Remove greens from carrots. Place carrots on heavy baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook for 20 minutes until they just begin to brown and blister.


For pesto:


1

Place washed carrot greens (may substitute parsley or basil) in basin of food processor with blade attachment. Combine olive oil, garlic and juice of one lemon. Blitz until smooth, adding a little additional olive oil if it feels too thick.


2

Warm a shallow, heavy pan over medium heat while you prepare the sandwiches. Spread a layer of butter, ghee, or olive oil on one side of each slice of bread. Lay flat (buttered side down) and layer with asiago, then pesto, and then four to five roasted carrots. It’s okay if the stems stick out. Finish with another layer of cheese and the other slice of bread. Place in the pan and grill on each side for 2 to 4 minutes until browned as you prefer. Cut in half. Repeat. Enjoy.


*For Mediterranean Diet-friendly recipe replace sourdough bread with rustic whole-grain bread.
