Comments
If you'd like, be comfortable with using Swiss Cheese or a combination of Bel Paese, Fontina, and Parmesan for a great flavor.

Also, this can be pumped-up for a heartier suppertime meal with the addition of 2 cups of chunked ham.

As a decorative touch, when I want to make this look really pretty, I use thin sliced red onion rings and small sprig of rosemary or dill from my garden. It is a delicious added touch too!
