Tuesday: Pressed Mozzarella Sandwiches

I forgot that I had a dance class yesterday on the later side, so I didn't have time to do the Buttermilk Chicken -- that will be for tonight!

Instead - I made the pressed mozzarella sandwiches that I had seen, and drooled over, here. I knew it would be pretty fast, and I had just gotten a jar of Giada's Pesto last weekend at Target that I wanted to try.

Really liked this pesto! It tasted fresh, and had a hint of sweetness that I really liked.
These sandwiches were YUM. Pulled out the panini press (which has been gathering dust as of late) and used the following:

UDI's Whole Grain Bread
Giada's Basil Pesto
Fresh Tomato
Fresh Mozzarella
Red Pepper Flakes
EVOO spray

I was pretty impatient and didn't wait long enough to let the cheese melt all the way through, but my husband did. His regular bread also held up a little better to the pesto, but we both loved this & will definitely have it again for a quick & easy dinner.

Wow, that looks amazing. I think I am making some pesto inspired meals this week too. I love pesto!
