1 Bakers Delight Continental Pasta Dura, sliced
4 tbs fresh pesto
8 slices mozzarella cheese
3 large ripe tomatoes
2 tbs balsamic vinegar


    1. Step 1

      Instructions to make 1 sandwich, repeat until you have desired number of sandwiches (recipe is for 4)

      Slice up your tomatoes in medium slices (should have about 12 slices for 4 sandwiches, or 3 slices per sandwich), and place them in a shallow dish. Pour 2tbs balsamic vinegar over tomatoes. Let sit while preparing the rest

    2. Step 2

      Butter both sides of bread lightly. Turn over, so butter is facing down. Top 1 slice with 1tbs of pesto, add 1 slice of cheese, 3 tomatoes, and then another slice of cheese. If you like it really pesto-y, add some more pesto to top slice. Place top break slice butter side out

    3. Step 3

      Heat skillet or panini press, and put sandwich on to cook. If using a skillet, flip when golden brown on one side. I cooked on a skillet for about 3 minutes on medium on each side. Repeat until all sandwiches are cooked

      Cut in half with bread knife and enjoy!
