    LilPinkieJ's Note:

    Grilled Ham and Asparagus Panini Recipe from Festival Foods. This is by far my most favorite sandwich of the month. I like mine with roasted asparagus and sourdough bread. Another great option is using some melty Fontina or farmers cheese. I have also made this with thick pita bread and it adds another dimension. I love to make this sandwich for those days when you want something from those expensive Bistros, but also want to make it your own. Please try your own style and let me know how it turns out for you!

      This was absolutely delicious. I did not have any red pepper and I substituted Swiss cheese for the the asiago. I also used canned, drained asparagus. It was so flavorful and good and my husband ate half of the sandwiches for lunch. Thank you for posting! Fabulous recipe.

      wow what a great panini. It's so original. A great blend of flavours. I omitted the butter and garlic salt cause I cooked them in my panini pan with PAM. I loved the combination of mayonnaise and pesto. Instead of asiago, I used swiss cheese. Thanks Jess. Made for 123 hit wonders

      I halved this recipe for my DH and I. It made a delicious lunch. The asparagus goes so well with the ham, pesto sauce and mayonnaise. Very delicious!
