    Sharon123's Note:

    A delicious recipe from Ina Garten's cookbook, Barefoot Contessa at Home. If you don't have a panini press, that's okay, just place in a skillet with a heavy weight on top(foil covered brick, or heavy cast iron skillet, etc.) Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    sandwic ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat a panini grill machine or a heavy skillet.
    2. 2
      Core the tomatoes and slice tomatoes and mozzarella 1/4" thick.
    3. 3
      Place the bread slices on a cutting board(or work surface). Spread each slice evenly with pesto. Place a layer of mozzarella(about 2 slices) on half of the bread and cover with a layer of tomato. Sprinkle the tomato with a little kosher salt.
    4. 4
      Place the remaining slices of bread, pesto side down, on top. Spread the top and bottom of each sandwich with sotened butter.
    5. 5
      Grill the sandwiches in batches on the panini grill for 2-3 minutes, until the mozzarella starts to ooze out. If using a skillet, place a weight on top(I usually use another heavy cast iron skillet, or use a foil coverd brick, or other flat, heavy object. Cook 2-3 minutes, turn and cook other side 1-3 minutes.).
    6. 6
      Cut the sandwiches in half and serve warm. Enjoy!

      Note:.

      This is also excellent with a slice of roasted red bell pepper in it!

      I'm new to pesto, and I love it! I probably put too much on the sandwich, but it was soooo good! I used some homemade bread instead of the whole wheat. And my sandwich press didn't do too good a job, because it was so thick, so next time I will use the skillet! This sammie alone is a good reason to keep fresh pesto in the fridge. Thnx for sharing, Sharon! Made for KcK's Forum.
