[No image!]


Nicked from Real Simple, August 2004.


  • 2 Bread (sandwich rolls)
  • .66 cups Cheese (Mozzarella)
  • .66 cups Cheese (Ricotta)
  • 6 Basil Leaves (Fresh)

Cooking Instructions

Heat oven to 450ยบ F.

Slice the rolls in half horizontally. Hollow them out by removing most of the soft crumb from the tops and bottoms.

Distribute the mozzarella evenly inside each of the 4 hollowed-out halves. Place 1/3 cup of the ricotta into each bottom half. Top each bottom half with 3 basil leaves. Put the 2 halves of the rolls back together and wrap each sandwich in foil.

Bake until the outsides are crispy and the cheeses are melted, ~25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes. Slice in half and serve.
