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.

Have a go at other Panini recipes like the Tomato Basil Mozzarella Panini and Cream Cheese Veg Panini .
