 4 (or 8 if making a double stack) large portobello mushrooms
 3 tbsp Colavita Roasted Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 ¼ cup Colavita Balsamic Vinegar
 1 tbsp dried oregano
 1 healthy pinch each salt and black pepper
For Serving:
 8 slices Fontina or Provolone Cheese
 1 jar Colavita Pesto Sauce
 1 large beefsteak tomato
 4 ciabatta buns

Place the mushrooms in a large rimmed dish or baking sheet.


Combine the Colavita Roasted Garlic Extra Virgin Olive oil, Colavita Balsamic Vinegar, oregano, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.


Whisk to combine, then pour over the mushrooms and use a pastry brush to distribute the marinade, flipping the mushrooms over to ensure they are coated on both sides.


Allow the mushrooms to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.


Heat a large skillet over medium heat.


Once hot, add the portobello mushrooms to the skillet, taking care not to overcrowd the pan. Grill in batches if you must.


Sauté for about 3-6 minutes on each side, or until the mushrooms are deep golden brown on the edges and softened.


While cooking, brush with any leftover marinade for extra flavor.


Once cooked, remove from the pan.


Layer onto ciabatta rolls with slices of fontina, tomato and dollops of Colavita Pesto Sauce.
