Expert Tips

Pesto is an uncooked sauce originating in Genoa, Italy. Fresh basil, Parmesan cheese, garlic, pine nuts and olive oil are blended together to make pesto. Look for pesto in the refrigerated case near the fresh pasta.

To save about 11 grams of fat and about 90 calories per sandwich, use fat-free mayonnaise.

These sandwiches are great for a picnic. Wrap them tightly in foil or plastic wrap and keep them very cold until serving time.
