    MarraMamba's Note:

    This is a Tom Colicchio recipe (Wichcraft) that I cut in half, but once you make the pesto, it's easy to make 1 or 20. (I still don't see how they get 20 out of it--lol)

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a food processor, combine the sun-dried tomatoes with the olives and oregano. Season with pepper and process to a coarse paste.
    2. 2
      Lightly brush 1 side of each slice of bread with olive oil and set on a large baking sheet, oiled side down. Top half of the bread with the provolone, spread each slice with 1 tablespoon of the tomato-olive pesto and top with the mozzarella. Close the sandwiches with the remaining bread, oiled side up.
    3. 3
      Heat a griddle or a very large skillet. Arrange 3 or 4 sandwiches on the griddle and top with a cast-iron skillet: do not press the pan down. Cook the sandwiches over moderately high heat until golden on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and cook until browned and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
    4. 4
      Cut the crusts off the sandwiches, then cut into triangles and serve.
    5. 5
      MAKE AHEAD The panini can be prepared through Step 3 and stored on a wire rack at room temperature for up to 6 hours. Reheat on a baking sheet in a 350°F oven until crisp.

      Easy & delicious. I love when simple ingredients combine into somnething special. I used the panini maker & used olive oil cooking spray. Paired with Spicy Orange Salad, Moroccan Style and made for ZWT6.

      This was part of our panini party. I spread out lots of ingredients and posted the recipes nearby. This was a perfect choice for vegetarians. Also added a little fresh basil. Yummo!
