Italian Gooey Grilled Cheese

posted in: Recipes 0

My Italian grilled cheese was made from convenience. I was in the mood for a grilled cheese, but when I went for the American cheese, we were out. I looked around and saw that there was cottage cheese, and we had some pepperoni, so I figured why not. The result was a gooey, cheesy sandwich that I could dip in pizza sauce.
