Who doesn’t love a good sandwich? I know I do and this is one of them. It is an ode to summer with roasted peppers and courgette mingling with herbacious pesto. I really think pesto tastes better in the summer, for some reason, and it loves hanging out with the vegetables that thrive in warm weather.

Like most of my recipes this sandwich is easy to make even though you are roasting vegetables for it. That is something you can totally do ahead of time though, maybe even better that way as the vegetables get a chance to really cool down and develop their flavour that way.

Either way you do it this sandwich makes a great lunch at home or on the go. It also makes a great addition to your summer picnic basket and if you are looking for more picnic recipes check out this video where you can also see me prepare these sandwiches. Enjoy!
