Costco's Turkey Provolone Pesto Sandwich Melt

My mom got me hooked on this sandwich shortly after they started serving them at Costco.  {She knows my love for pesto}.  Later I had to introduce John to the sandwich (really I had to go back to have it again it was so good!)  He liked it and shortly after found a knock off recipe on Pinterest that is a perfect copycat.  So now we buy the ingredients (mostly from Costco) to make them at home.  
This is also a super fast dinner!

John's Rating: 9

Recipe from:  Jamie Cooks It Up 

2 square Ciabotta rolls from Costco
3 Tbsp pesto
2 Tbsp mayonnaise (I used Light)
6 slices of  turkey breast lunch meat from Costco
Sliced large tomato
Sliced red onion
2-4 slices provolone cheese

Slice each roll in half and lay them out on a large cookie sheet you have lined with tin foil.
In a small bowl combine pesto and mayonnaise. Spread the pesto/mayo mixture over both sides of each roll. Layer the tomato and red onion over half of the rolls. Lay the turkey out over the other half of the rolls (3 slices per roll). Cover the tomatoes and onions with a nice big slice of provolone cheese., you can put another slice of cheese over the meat side, good either way.  

Bake these beauties in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Turn the oven to broil, and let the cheese get nice and golden brown. Watch closely so they don't burn!  Put each of the sandwich halves together and serve. 

Side note:  I tried it with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving in place of the lunch meat, it was ok, but the lunch meat is much better!
