Sausage Sandwich with Pesto

Take the sausage sandwich to another level with Italian ingredients like mozzarella and pesto. Hearty and flavourful, it's a great choice when hunger strikes.

Prep Time

        Prep time: 5 minutes
        Cook time: 10 minutes
        Yield: Serves 2


    •    handful rocket
    •    2 tbsps fresh pesto
    •    1 ciabatta roll, sliced in half
    •    1/2 x 125g ball mozzarella, sliced
    •    1 roasted red pepper from a jar, sliced in half
    •    2 herby Cumberland sausages, sliced in half lengthways

 Heat grill to high. Put the sausages on a baking sheet, cut-side down, and grill for 5-6 mins or until cooked through, then set aside. Lay the ciabatta roll halves, cut-side up, on a baking tray and spread each with pesto. Top each half with a pepper and mozzarella slice, then grill for 2 mins or until golden and bubbling. Add the sausages and a handful of rocket, and put the roll back together, pressing down firmly to hold the fillings in place
