“Found in the Barilla Celebrity Cookbook, this is a very fancy grilled mozzarella sandwich with a classic seasoning. There are a wide variety of versions of this recipe, mostly differing in their spicing. I've made it a few times. Replacing the cream with 1% milk does work, but it takes slightly longer to cook off the additional water.”
