Turkey Pesto Ciao Panini
Serve this with your Italian dressing or balsamic & oil for dipping.
Sorry for the sloppy pix, but my son was yelling he was hungry, & I didn't have time to clean up the drizzles & crumbs, etc., as I was cooking. :)

1Slice the onions, mushrooms & red peppers. Get the onions on sautee. I like to add some balsamic & vinegar dressing as I'm sauteeing them. Let them cook a bit.
8Put this on your press & cook away. As it was getting a bit softer, I continued to press down on the handle every so often.
10Top with more dressing or balsamic/oil or serve with little cups for dipping. I like tons of oil on my sandwiches -- my son does not, so I like the individual bowls of dressing.
