Grilled Mozzarella & Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

This is my favorite grilled cheese sandwich!!!

olive oil
1 T. reduced-fat olive oil vinaigrette or Italian salad dressing
2 slices ( 2 oz.) Italian-style sandwich bread
1/3 c. roasted red bell peppers, rinsed, drained, and patted dry
Basil leaves (optional but oh, so good)
2 oz. part-skim mozzarella (or reduced-fat Swiss cheese) slices

Brush each slice of bread with olive oil on one side only (lightly) but be sure to coat completely.
Brush dressing on the opposite side of each bread slice; top with peppers, basil, cheese, then the second slice of bread with oiled side out.

Heat skillet over medium heat until hot. Place sandwich in skillet and grill 4 to 5 minutes until browned and cheese is melted. This also works great on a grill pan or in a panini maker.
