If you’re anything like me, you probably have a jar of pesto in your fridge, just dying to be used. You can add pesto to so many things, but one of my favorite ways to use up that jar is to slather it on a sandwich. In my “Already Stocked” recipes, I always encourage you to use what you have—you could sub in different veggies, leave off the mayo, use a different kind of bread, etc.

Vegetarian: Omit turkey; add an additional slice of cheese, hummus (in place of the mayo), and/or an additional vegetable.

Gluten-free: Use gluten-free bread or a lettuce wrap.

Paleo: Use Paleo-friendly rolls or a lettuce wrap. Omit cheese.
