Sun-dried Tomato Tuna Melt

We had the best tuna melt the other weekend at Savi Provisions in Inman park, a cute little neighborhood grocery store. I think the magic ingredient  was some sort of pesto spread. It was so delicious I was inspired to play around with a new tuna sandwich recipe. We had sun-dried tomatoes at home so I decided to go the route of sun-dried tomatoes vs pesto and with some help from a Tasty Kitchen recipe I created this yummy sandwich.
