Comments on this Recipe

Substitute Basil with Tulsi.

Perhaps a tortilla would help keep everything together better?

Oh my gosh this sou ds Devine!

This is one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten!!!! Used feta instead of goat cheese, though. Goat cheese tastes a little too tangy for me. I will definitely make this again!!!
