Grilled Cheese with Pesto and Roma Tomatoes

Chewers, we all know that Grilled Cheese sandwiches are one of the most popular, classic, All-American comfort foods.  I remember as a kid, my mom was the queen of stacking those slices of Kraft high for the perfect oh-so oooey-goooey grilled cheese sandwich! Well, grown-up calorie-conscious LC still enjoys a good grilled cheese, but with a twist! Check out our #ChewRight Grilled Cheese with Pesto and Roma Tomatoes.  Substituting those good ol’ Kraft Singles for Laughing Cow cheese wedges (Garlic and Herb flavor) not only gives it a sophisticated flair, but it cuts down on the calories! We dressed this classic up with some homemade pesto and fresh, ripe Roma Tomatoes. #ChewRight my friends!
