- 1 Ciabatta Roll
- 2 tablespoons Cucina & Amore Sun Dried Tomato Pesto
- 2 slices Provolone Cheese
- 1 ripe Tomato, thinly sliced
- Fresh Basil leaves
- Salt, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
Preheat your Panini Press:
- If you don't have a panini press, you can use a grill pan or a regular skillet.
Slice the Ciabatta Roll:
- Cut the Ciabatta roll in half horizontally to create a top and bottom for your sandwich.
Spread the Sun Dried Tomato Pesto:
- On the bottom half of the Ciabatta roll, spread a generous layer of Cucina & Amore Sun Dried Tomato Pesto.
Layer the Provolone Cheese:
- Place the Provolone cheese slices on top of the pesto, evenly covering the bread.
Add Tomato Slices and Basil:
- Layer the tomato slices on the cheese, and scatter fresh basil leaves over the tomatoes. This combination adds a burst of freshness to the panini.
Season with Salt and Pepper:
- Sprinkle a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper over the tomatoes and basil. Adjust according to your taste preferences.
Top with the Other Half of the Ciabatta:
- Place the other half of the Ciabatta roll on top to create a sandwich.
Grill the Panini:
- Place the assembled panini onto the preheated panini press, grill pan, or skillet. Cook until the bread is golden brown, and the cheese is melted, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
Serve and Enjoy:
- Once the panini is golden and the cheese is oozy, carefully remove it from the press. Allow it to cool for a moment before slicing it into halves or quarters. Serve immediately and savor the delightful flavors of the Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Panini.
This panini is a perfect harmony of bold flavors and textures, making it an ideal choice for a quick and delicious meal. Enjoy the taste of the Mediterranean in every bite!
