Toasted sandwiches with tomato pesto and Castello® Double Cream Truffle

Preparation

Remove the coarse stems from the rosemary. Mix all the ingredients for the pesto except for the salt , pepper and lemon juice into a homogeneous mixture. Season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon. You now have a pesto.

Spread a thin layer of the pesto on the bread before adding thin slices of cheese. Close with another slice of bread.

Heat the oven to 150°C. In a little oil, fry each sandwich on each side until golden. This will only take a short time, but to make sure the cheese is completely melted, it should then have a couple of minutes in the oven. If you are making lots of sandwiches, then reduce the oven temperature to 110-120°C. Then it will keep them hot.
