Caprese Panini

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LMillerRN

A favorite salad gets its turn in a sandwich. For a different flavor, use jarred roasted red peppers in place of the tomato. Purchased pesto is fine here, but homemade is even better.

This was great summer dinner. Light and delicious with fresh tomatoes.
