PLT with Pesto Sandwich

What is a PLT you wonder? It is a Pancetta, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich.
Yesterday, I stopped by our local Italian store to buy some pancetta. Pancetta is the Italian version of bacon. It is in a circular form. Get it sliced thin and it fries up in no time!

serves 6 ( 7 points +)

  • 6 small ciabatta rolls ( I used Take and Bake rolls)
  • ¼ lb. thinly sliced pancetta
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, sliced
  • Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 6 T. reduced-fat pesto sauce

Fry pancetta in a pan until slightly crisp. Drain on paper towels.
Slice rolls, spread one side with 1 T. pesto sauce. Top with cooked pancetta, lettuce, tomato.
