This recipe came from my partner, who tried this without my knowledge. When you have a rainy afternoon and looking for an ideal snack, here is your treat!

2 Slices Bread
2 Tblsps of softened Butter
1 Ounce of Artichoke Pesto
2-3 Slices of Cheese (Cheddar or Kraft Melties)
Fresh Baby Spinach Leaves-optional

In a hot skillet, put down the buttered side of bread. Before you add the cheese, spread on Artichoke Pesto. If it is just coming out of the refrigerator, heat in microwave for 10 seconds. This will help spread easier. Apply some fresh spinach; they will wilt when heated. Add cheese. Apply second piece of bread, first adding the pesto, then the flip side, more butter. Flip over the grilled cheese and smash flat with spatula. Grilled cheese takes about 3 minutes or less per side. Both sides of bread should be a golden brown. Cut your grilled cheese and experience great melty goodness.
