Name a sandwich that brings back happy memories.
Go on...take a minute. For me, it's grilled cheese sandwiches. I have always love them and my husband loves them too and we even enjoy them for dinner at least once a week.
Today I'm going to share with you a new twist on an old favorite with these Grilled Pesto Panini Sandwiches.
A few years ago my husband gave me a panini grill pan to use on top of the stove; which I love. Since becoming a Pampered Chef Independent Consultant I've discovered Pampered Chef's grill pan!
It's great and it makes the best grilled sandwiches. I love making grilled cheese sandwiches with it and my husband loves these pesto panini sandwiches!

This is the grill pan I have and I love it. I don't always use the weighted top as I find it does make the sandwiches really flat, but the grill pan is wonderful. It's non-stick and gives great
grill marks on the bread.
Let's Check out the Recipe!
Grilled Pesto Panini Sandwiches

I love the grill marks this panini grill pan makes.
My husband and I loved these pesto panini sandwiches and have had
them a few times for dinner. I usually make them when we're having soup for dinner.
This is the sun dried tomato pesto we used. It's really good.
I'm going to use it again in a recipe for chicken stuffed with
this pesto and mozzarella cheese.
