The tastes of summer are terrific in this quick fix meal. You do NOT need a panini press for this sandwich.

This was delicious! My husband and son loved it, as did I. Will definitely make it again. The only changes I made were I used Pepper Jack only and omitted the Cheddar and used sourdough bread.
