This is was really a tasty sandwich! I used herbed Boursin as I couldn't find the pepper. Had a hard time finding arugula so I used some fresh leaf lettuce I bought from the farmers market. Love the red peppers, I think they made the sandwich! Thanks so much for sharing Julie! Made for the Rowdies, ZWT5.

Great sandwich!!! I couldn't find the black pepper boursin, but they did have the garlic and chive, so I used that instead and but a good amount of freshly ground pepper on it. Easy to make and a big step up from the typical grilled sandwich! I don't have a panini press so just grilled them in a skillet. Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas - ZWT5.

I just got a panini grill for my birthday, and this is the first panini I tried making on it. We really enjoyed it. I used ciabatta bread and had to use garlic herb boursin as I couldn't find the pepper boursin. Otherwise, we followed all ingredients and directions as posted. Thanks! Made for ZWT5.
