  1. Preheat your Panini Press:

    • If you don't have a panini press, you can use a grill pan or a regular skillet.
  2. Slice the Ciabatta Roll:

    • Cut the Ciabatta roll in half horizontally to create a top and bottom for your sandwich.
  3. 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.
  4. Layer the Provolone Cheese:

    • Place the Provolone cheese slices on top of the pesto, evenly covering the bread.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Top with the Other Half of the Ciabatta:

    • Place the other half of the Ciabatta roll on top to create a sandwich.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
