  3. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Set aside to cool.
  4. Once cooled, add the mozzarella and gently stir to combine.

  6. Preheat a sandwich press.

  8. Place the sandwich on the sandwich press and gently press down the lid. Toast for 3–5 minutes or until the sandwich is golden
