Grilled pesto and parmesan sandwich

I love sandwiches, and grilled sandwiches are some of my favorites. Here's a very simple recipe for a grilled pesto and parmesan sandwich that can be made in minutes.

2 slices whole grain bread (the crustier, the better!)
1-2 tablespoons of pesto
1 tablespoon shredded parmesan cheese
2-3 slices of tomato
1 small handful of flavorful lettuce
1 tablespoon coconut oil (or butter - please, no margarine!!)

Slather on the coconut oil and assemble sandwich, leaving out the lettuce. Place on griddle pan until the bread is browned on both sides. Add lettuce to the grilled sandwich and enjoy!

Variations: Try adding grilled chicken, portobello mushroom,
