Pesto Tunafish Melt Sandwich

Deborah Mackrodt


I wanted to make something different then your plain old tuna fish sandwich. I love pesto and thought this would be a good combination. It was! I also just loved Friendly's tuna melts and this was very similar. You can use any bread you want. Even my other half loved it and he doesn't really care for tunafish.
