Recipe by: Frankie


2 cups (about 2 ounces) fresh baby spinach leaves
2 TBSP pine nuts
1 garlic clove, peeled
2 TBSP freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 TBSP olive oil
salt & pepper
4 slices hearty Italian bread
2 slices of provolone cheese
1 TBSP unsalted butter, softened


1. Add the spinach, pine nuts, garlic, and Parmesan to a food processor or blender and blend into a paste. Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in the olive oil, dash of salt, and dash of pepper. Taste the pesto sauce and season with additional salt & pepper if necessary.

2. Lay out the bread slices and spread the pesto sauce evenly on one side of each slice of bread. Lay a slice of provolone on top of the pesto on 2 of the slices of bread then lay the remaining slices of bread pesto-side down on to the provolone (the sandwiches should be: slice of bread - pesto - provolone - pesto - slice of bread).

3 Spread the butter evenly on the outside top and bottom of the sandwiches.

4. Heat a large pan over medium-heat. When the pan is hot lay the sandwiches in the pan and cook until browned on one side, about 4 minutes.

5. Carefully flip the sandwiches over and cook until sandwiches are browned on the other side, about 4 more minutes.
