Pesto Panini

Come to find out that this bread makes a mean panini.  So. Very. Good.  Add a little pesto, some fresh mozzarella and a few slices of tomatoes from your garden and you have an easy dinner.

Another version we had was with pesto and some leftover grilled vegetables (zucchini, onions, red peppers.)  They were amazing.

For the kids I use the same bread, spread it with a little (usually leftover) spaghetti sauce, add some fresh mozzarella and call them “pizza paninis.”  They love them.

P.S.  I love my panini press.  It is one of my most-used kitchen tools in the summer.
