1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
16 Italian bread slices
16 provolone cheese slices
Marinara sauce


Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 6 Minutes

1. Stir together butter and Parmesan cheese; spread on 1 side of each bread slice. Place 8 bread slices, buttered sides down, on wax paper.

2. Layer 8 bread slices on wax paper each with 2 provolone cheese slices, and top with remaining bread slices, buttered sides up.

3. Cook sandwiches, in batches, on a hot griddle or in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, gently pressing with a spatula, 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese melts. Cut each sandwich into fourths, and serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
