The first thing you think of, when you here mozarella grilled cheese sandwich, you think of caprese. Tomatoes and basil go perfectly with the mozarella and it’s a classic combination, but I wanted to do something else and went for roasted bellpeppers and spring onions instead and the outcome is just delicious. The bellpeppers are so aromatic and go so well with the creamy cheese.
