A yummy grilled sandwich with a surprisingly sophisticated spin is the anchor for a satisfying meal. Serve this with a Caesar salad and potato chips.

Hands on time: 30 minutes Total time: 30 minutes Serves: 4
6 to 8 tablespoons prepared pesto
8 slices sourdough bread
6 slices Provolone cheese

On a stove-top griddle or in a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sandwiches until the bottom is golden and the cheese melts, about 2 minutes per side.
This recipe shows that you are never too young to turn favorite flavors into something creative in the kitchen.
Ten-year-old Helen Olson of McDonough writes, “I love pesto and grilled cheese, so I thought that I would combine my favorite things. It tasted great.”
Olson, who especially loves to cook Italian food, gets inspiration by watching the Food Network. If you want more Italian flavor, add a slice or two of prosciutto.
