Pesto is a lovely Italian sauce with the warm taste of walnut and basil. In this recipe, we have used pesto to make Panini, a special type of grilled sandwich made with breads like baguette, ciabatta and michetta.
The Pesto and Mozzarella Panini is a classic snack, with the exotic taste of pesto, combined with a cheesy gooeyness. A dash of herbs and spices enhances the taste of the Panini, making it something really special.
Panini is never made with sliced bread, so if you cannot lay your hands on any of the varieties of Panini bread, use hot dog rolls instead.

- Slit each hot dog roll horizontally using a sharp knife. Apply ½ tsp of olive oil on each halve.
- Place a hot dog roll on a clean, dry surface and spread ½ tbsp of pesto sauce on each halve.
- Place 2 mozzarella slices on the lower halve, sprinkle ¼ tsp of mixed herbs, ¼ tsp of chilli flakes and little salt evenly over it.
- Close the bread roll and apply ½ tsp of butter on top of the roll and grill in a greased pre-heated sandwich griller for 5 minutes till they turn crispy and brown from both the sides.
- Repeat steps 2 to 4 to make 3 more paninis.
- Cut each panini diagonally into 2 equal pieces.
- Serve immediately.
