    TGI Friday's has a dish called the Roasted Veggie Sandwich. I wanted to duplicate it, so I used this recipe. Instead of feta, I used a thick slice of mozzarella, added roasted red peppers, and spread the pesto mayo onto the foccaccia bread. Yummy...tasted pretty close to me. Thanks for the recipe Erin!  -  04 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This sandwich was awesome! It caught my eye because I had most of the ingredients on hand but had to make some slight alterations. I toasted the focaccia bread slightly, then put my pesto sauce on one side and the mayo-mixed pesto sauce I happened to have from another recipe on top. I didn't have a red pepper so I used a green one. I sprinkled a little olive oil on top of the gr. pepper and a little black pepper and baked in my toaster oven for about 10 mins. I used tomato-basil feta cheese and the fresh basil leaves. Stupendous! Think it will be even better with a red pepper.  -  19 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Too fatty what with the oil and mayo. Better to mix the pesto with riccotta cheese in the blender. Also, basil is expensive. We make pesto of fresh spinach leaves, parsley, lemon juice, walnuts, parmesan cheese, and canola oil. We swear by it, try it.  -  03 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
