Basil Pesto and Tomato Sandwich

Basil Pesto and Tomato Sandwich

Here is an easy to put together lunch-ready in less than 5 minutes and can be prepared ahead and packed to go. It is a no brainer if you have some Pesto on hand. I usually prepare a big batch of Pesto and keep some frozen. The sandwich when combined with a healthy side qualifies for the ’400 calories or less’ lunch category.

You need:

2 slices of bread, I used white bread
1 tbsp Basil Pesto
1/2 medium tomato
1/2 tbsp butter (I used I can’t believe its not Butter spread)
salt and pepper to taste

1. Spread Pesto on one slice and butter on the other.
2. Slice the tomato and arrange it on bread with Pesto
3. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste
4. Cover and cut the sandwich diagonally

Serve with a side like a cup of fruit or small garden salad.
