One of my favorite combinations of all time is the Italian triad of flour, cheese, and tomatoes: pizza crust covered in tomato sauce and mozzarella, pasta topped with marinara and parmesan, tomato soup garnished with asiago and breadcrumbs. It's just perfection! With just a little effort, the beloved grilled cheese sandwich can be tweaked to make a fun finger-food appetizer.
Grilled Cheese Breadsticks and Marinara
1 grilled cheese sandwich
1/4 cup marinara sauce
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground oregano and basil
salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, reduce the sauce in the microwave for 60 seconds. Add the spices and stir well. Cut the sandwich into 4-5 strips, de-crusting if desired. Dip and enjoy!

Nadya's Omelette Burrito
1 omelette (I asked for everything on it)
1 wrap from the grill section
Whatever toppings are available at the burrito bar (I put salsa, guacamole, corn, and some black beans)
Go to the egg station at the Ratty and order an omelette with the desired condiments Once you pick up the omelette, put it on one half of the wrap Add whatever toppings are available at the burrito bar Wrap it burrito style (fold it halfway with all the stuffing tucked in, then fold the sides, and wrap it up)
