  1. Start with the pineapple. Peel and core the pineapple (you can usually find peeled, cored pineapple at the market to make things easier), and cut ½ of the pineapple into planks about ½ inch thick. Season each plank with a little kosher salt.
  2. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the pineapple and cook for about 3 minutes on each side until sexy grill marks appear and the fruit is lightly caramelized. Briefly set aside.
  3. Now it’s time to assemble the grilled cheese. To assemble each sandwich: Butter one side of each piece of bread with ½ tablespoon softened butter and place the bread butter-side down on a cutting board. Top one piece of bread with about ¼ cup cheese and add a layer of prosciutto. Sprinkle another 2 tablespoons of cheese on the prosciutto and add half of the grilled pineapple and half of the basil. Sprinkle with another 2 tablespoons of cheese and add another layer of prosciutto. Add the remaining ¼ cup cheese and top with the second piece of bread (buttered side facing out).
  4. Heat a large non-stick pan or skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the sandwiches and cover with a lid. Cook for about 4 minutes until the underside is golden brown. Flip the sandwiches and chook for 3-4 minutes more.
  5. Remove your epic grilled cheese from the pan and serve immediately with tomato sauce for dipping.
