I just bought a Calphalon panini grill with grill press and it worked great. This is the basic recipe, but next time I'm going to mix and match the ingredients to come up with another sandwich.

This is a really good sandwich because not only is it flavorful, but it's easy to whip together! If you don’t have a Panini grill you can use a stovetop griddle or a skillet.

Note: I played with the amount of pesto a bit to suit my taste. You may want to try a little more or a little less depending on your preference. The Test Kitchen
