Foodie: Tomato, Mozzarella and Spinach Tartines

Turn the standard sandwich on its head with a French twist. A traditional French open-faced sandwich, the tartine adds everyday elegance to the lunchtime staple. Toasted rye, topped with fresh spinach, creamy mozzarella and lightly roasted tomatoes makes for a new kind of sandwich to excite your taste buds and your lunch box.

Tomato, Mozzarella and Spinach Tartines

1 slice of rye bread, cut in half

1/3 cup shredded mozzarella

1/4 cup spinach, cut in a chiffonade

1 tomato, thinly sliced

1/4 teaspoon grated parmesan, divided in half

Salt and pepper (to taste)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven warms up, assemble the tartines. Place the bread on a foil-lined baking sheet and evenly sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Roll the spinach leaves into a cigar and cut into long, thin strips. Place a little of the spinach on each half and top with two tomato slices. Finish the tartines with a light seasoning of salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of parmesan on top. Place the tartines in the oven and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese melts and the bread is lightly toasted.
