These were good. I think I used more tomatoes. We tried some with reduced fat Irish cheddar and some with goat cheese (even better), and served them open face.

This was very easy and delicious as well. Next time I will use olive oil in place of Italian Dressing, then I'll add my own seasoning - maybe just oil and vinegar. Made for Top Recipes of 2009 Tag Game.

I loved it, i heated it in the panini maker so the cheese melted and it was heavenly as part of my sandwich day
