When i got a mail to join the "Take the Real Lunch" product sampling from Sargento. I couldn't resist that. I am a cheese lover, i love anything cheesy, so creating a recipe using the Sargento cheese was a pleasure for me. I accepted the offer, within a week i received a parcel . I got a lunch bag along with three coupons. I got the sargento mozzarella sliced cheese and got into action. The challenge is to create a real lunch recipe.
This summer, Sargento is encouraging people to take a real lunch to savor natural foods and recipes the way they were meant to be enjoyed. Sargento Natural Sliced Cheeses are cut from real block cheese to add delicious flavors to hand-crafted sandwiches. Available in traditional or Ultra Thin cut, Sargento Natural Sliced Cheeses offer the largest variety of fresh-tasting cheeses, including Deli Style Medium Cheddar and Provolone Cheeses, Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese and Natural Blends Cheddar-Mozzarella Cheese.
I made a grilled cheese sandwich recipe which is my all time favorite one. I filled it with sweet roasted peppers and tomatoes. The combination of the sweet peppers and cheese was so good and it was a total hit. It was filling and was perfectly gooey which i love in my grilled cheese sandwiches
