Customers at a McDonald's in Pasadena, California, recently spotted a brand-new addition to McDonald's menu of Signature Crafted sandwiches: the Pesto Mozzarella Melt. In recent years, the fast food chain has been elevating its menu with globally inspired ingredients. Now it is drawing on Italian cuisine to add the nutty taste of pesto to its hearty chicken sandwiches.
The new Pesto Mozzarella Melt is a gourmet, Signature Crafted sandwich that consists of a marinated grilled chicken breast filet topped with two generous slices of melted mozzarella, sliced tomato, baby greens, basil and a creamy pesto sauce. The whole thing is served on a toasted artisan roll to complement the delicious medley of flavors.
While it is unclear if the new sandwich will be rolled out nation-wide, the Italian-inspired creation demonstrates McDonald's ongoing commitment to offering consumers more high-end ingredients.
