Comments
A fruit cup or a tossed green salad, or both, and it's a complete meal.

Note 1: Use a good quality or a bakery bread for this recipe, the cheap "store barnd white air bread" works, but can't hold up well, and mooshes out too much.

Note 2: Use your imagination and layer some steamed vegetables or fresh sliced tomatoes to enhance this recipe to include flavor you like too! We like to use fresh tomatoes thinly sliced, sweet basil leaves (crushed is fine), with a combination of cheeses of usually parmesan, motzerella, and and added 1 cup of ricotta.
