    • Season your chicken with salt and pepper.

    • In a separate sauté pan, heat olive oil, then add fresh spinach. Sauté until tender.
    • Melt the Fontina, Asiago, mozzarella and half of the parmesan cheese over low heat in a sauce pot. Add a small amount of milk to help keep the consistency smooth. Add Italian dressing, sundried tomatoes and pesto.
    • Spread melted cheese mixture on one half of each Piadina.
    • Top with ¼ of the grilled chicken and ¼ of the sautéed spinach.
    • Sprinkle Montamore, Romano, smoked mozzarella, smoked provolone and remaining parmesan cheeses over the chicken and spinach.
    • Heat a large saute pan with a small amount of olive oil.
    • Fold Piadina in half and place in the center of the pan.
    • Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
    • Remove from heat, and cut into 4-6 triangular pieces. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
    • Enjoy!
