Healthy Pesto Grilled Cheese

This Healthy Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich is full of flavor, and so easy to make. It's healthy, simple, delicious, and a family favorite that everyone will enjoy. If you are not a pesto lover, you just might be, after you take a bite of this beauty.

Not everyone loves pesto, and that’s totally fine, but as for me, I could probably eat pesto straight out of the jar or bowl with a spoon.

I love it on everything. I decided to add it to my grilled cheese sandwich earlier this week and I couldn’t get enough of it.

These Healthy Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich are for any pesto or grilled cheese lover who might want a healthier option next time lunch rolls around.

They are full of flavor, and have the most amazing texture. They take minutes to throw together and are so easy to make. You will love this simple and delicious recipe.

what would be a good side dish for this recipe?

I have the hardest time with side dishes. I am always exhausted after making the main dish, that the thought of a side dish, seems unbearable. However, I have a few side dishes that pair perfectly with this grilled cheese.

Here are a few sides I highly recommend:

Soup: You can’t have a grilled cheese sandwich and not dip it in soup. It’s just unheard of. If you are looking for a simple and delicious soup recipe, I highly recommend trying our, Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Soup.

It is made in the slow cooker and could not get more easy.

Salad: You can’t go wrong with a salad and sandwich combo. Our Bacon and Swiss Salad is beyond easy to make and full of amazing flavor. You will love this simple recipe.

Fruit: If you plan to make this dish in the summer, you may want to pair it with some fresh summer fruit. Our favorite fruit salad, is our Citrus Fruit Salad. It’s a beautiful display and tastes amazing.
