These panini will leave you satisfied and full without feeling heavy. The secret? A combination of pesto sauce, Sargento® Sliced Mozzarella Cheese and a slice of juicy tomato between toasted slices of hearty Italian bread.

Ingredients
  • 8 slices country Italian, sourdough or other firm-textured bread
  • 8 slices Sargento® Sliced Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/3 cup pesto sauce
  • 4 slices large tomato
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
Directions
  1. Top each of 4 slices of bread with a slice of cheese. Spread pesto sauce over cheese. Place tomatoes on top, then another slice of cheese. Close sandwiches with remaining 4 slices bread.
  2. Brush olive oil over both sides of sandwiches. Cook sandwiches on grill over medium-low coals or in preheated ridged grill pan 3 minutes per side or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
