Mozzarella Pesto Melt

Mozzarella Pesto Melt

Pesto and cheese is such a fab combination! This is equally divine without heating it on a pan - just use ciabatta bread instead for a delicious sandwich. As most schools now have a nut-free policy, try making your pesto with sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts. Just as tasty, and safe to pack in the school lunch! Store the sandwiches in our portion pots to keep fresh, and send them in as a healthy snack in one of our adorable lunch setsThe Mummy Cooks Lunch Set Combo contains 20 pots in 4 different sizes, everything you will need for the week!
