Mozzarella, Pesto & Sundried Tomato Open Ciabatta


This Meat-Free Monday, I am bringing you a quick meal idea, perfect for lunch, or a late-night snack.

We are lucky to have a local supermarket near us, which reduces all of it's bakery items towards the end of the evening. This week, I popped in by chance for a loaf of bread, and ended up getting some delicious ciabatta rolls for just 7p each, and a crusty ciabatta loaf for just 40 pence - what a bargain!  It's worth popping in to your local supermarket at closing time to see what's on offer.

Typically, these reduced items need to be used straight away, and so Hubby and I had Mozzarella, Pesto & Sundried Tomato Open Ciabatta as a light tea. We really enjoyed our Ciabatta slices. The balsamic vinegar really combined well with the mozzarella and bought the flavour out of the sun dried tomatoes.

This was a really quick, easy, meal to prepare, and so it's great if you are also a bit short of time. All you do is place all of the ingredients on top of the bread and you are away. The recipe can be found below - enjoy!
