I had a bit of goats cheese to use and I was thinking about just crumbling it over a salad but then I thought, no I can do something more creative with this. While I was looking through my fridge for ideas I noticed some of the red peppers that I had roasted and frozen in the fall and I knew that the sweet and smoky roasted red peppers would go perfectly with the tangy goat cheese. Right beside the red peppers was some bread and I recalled my experiments with pestos in grilled cheese sandwiches and I knew that I would have to try making a grilled goat cheese and roasted red pepper pesto sandwich. Five minutes later I had a batch of roasted red pepper pesto and a few minutes after that I was enjoying a little piece of heaven in my mouth, well, after taking some photographs that is. I made sure to bring the goat cheese up to room temperature before making the sandwich and by the time it came off the grill pan it was just starting to get all melty and good! The creaminess of the goat cheese played really well with the sweet and flavourful pesto and the buttery, crispy fried bread coating finished everything off perfectly.
