Prep Day Directions: Spread one side of a slice of bread with butter Spread the top of the bread slice in the skillet with half the pesto sauce, and place a slice of provolone cheese and the slice of American cheese onto the pesto. Spread remaining pesto sauce on one side of the second slice of bread, and place the bread slice, pesto side down, onto the sandwich. Butter the top side of the sandwich. Place all sandwiches in large two gallon freezer bag and separate by using wax paper.

Serve Day Directions: Thaw. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F Arrange sandwiches on baking sheet Bake in preheated oven on the bottom rack for 6 to 8 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and bake for another 6 minutes. They will brown on the bottom so you would have to keep an eye on them using this method. It’s a quick way to have them all cooked at once for you. You can also do whatever is most convenient for you, frying ect. Prepare soup based according to directions on box.



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
