Such a simple and delightful lunch option. I served this for lunch today and both Aaron and TJ loved it although Aaron, not a fan of Pesto, had his with mustard, instead.
You can make this sandwich with any kind of bread. I would think Ciabatta would taste good with this combo. I used:
Costco’s Kirkland Pesto Sauce
Trader Joe’s Pastrami (buy the one without nitrates)
Trader Joe’s Mozzarella log (easy for slicing)
For the sandwich:
- Slather your bread with as much pesto as you like
- Slice the mozzarella in the thickness you prefer. Because mozzarella does not have a strong flavor of its own, it blends in well with the flavors of pesto and pastrami. Place on your bread
- Place 2-3 (or 3-4 depending on how thick you want your sandwich or how hungry you are) pastrami slices between your bread.
- Sandwich is ready. Enjoy with mustard and pickles!
