I made this for lunch today....

It is a TOMATO & MOZZARELLA PANINI with pesto sauce....It is really yummy and I have made it several times, several different ways and here is what I've found:

  • The recipe calls for a "french" bread loaf, but I use a multi grain baguette loaf because it is more dense and I find it doesn't get soggy with the pesto sauce sitting on it
  • I use pre-made pesto....Classico (lets be real, I don't really have the time nor the yearning to make my own)
  • Use the best tomatoes you can find...they need to be ripe!
  • Only a fresh ball of Mozzarella will do
  • Unless you have a special "panini" maker (which I don't) you HAVE to slab some butter on the bread to get that crispy, crunchy outside...I use my William Sonoma grill pan and just press down with a spatula while cooking...

If you would like the recipe...shoot me an email or leave a comment!


  1. I want the recipe! This looks great! Or, I could just come over and you could make it for me :-)

  2. Both options sound good...I could always use some girl time :) I will email you the recipe!

  3. That does look yummy! If you get a chance, go to Look at the November 9th entry. She has some toy ideas you might like. I enjoy reading about the Waldorf method and some of its components, but it is not entirely Christian based.

  4. Yummy! This looks amazing! What kind of tomatoes do you use? I cannot wait to make this:)


Thanks for visiting my blog...please do leave me a comment, I try to read them all!
