Italian Grilled Cheese
12 spears of grilled fresh asparagus (see my recipe for it http://tonya-justcooking.blogspot.com/2011/03/grilled-asparagus.html)
1 roasted red bell pepper cut into thin strips (see my recipe for it http://tonya-justcooking.blogspot.com/2011/02/roasting-sweet-peppers.html)
8 thick slices of provolone cheese
8 slices of Italian white bread
-Heat a large skillet (I use a double burner griddle) over medium heat. Assemble four sandwiches each with a slice of cheese, followed by 3 spears of grilled asparagus, a few slices of roasted peppers and lastly another slice of cheese on top. Butter both the outside of the top and the bottom piece of bread well, making sure to get all the way to the edges. Toss your sandwiches onto your hot skillet and cook just a few minutes on each side (watching carefully not to burn them, but to give them a nice dark golden browning). Once they are done, plate them and slice them in half. Serves 4. Enjoy!
