|Ari's Dolce Panini
|Recipe contributed by Ariana Uyehara
- 1 uncut loaf of bread
- 1/2 cup of pine nuts
- Olive oil
- Smoked mozzarella
- Handful of basil
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Block of parmigiano reggiano cheese
- Handful of cilantro
|To start off this panini or sandwich, you must first heat up a skillet to medium heat. Then drizzle with a little olive oil. Your loaf of bread should be a circular shape. Cut the bread in half so you end up with 2 circles. In a blender add in the 2 cloves of garlic, cilantro and basil. While this is blending start to drizzle in some olive oil. Then add in the pine nuts and drizzle in more oil. This is your spread, which should be thick and green. Add about 3 pieces of prosciutto onto the bread. Cut about 3 slices of mozzarella cheese and place it on the bread. Spread the mixture from the blender onto the top layer of the bread. Take the bread and combine it together to get a big sandwich. Place the sandwich onto the heated skillet. Grab a big heavy metal skillet and place it on top of the sandwich. The weight of the skillet will make the sandwich press down onto the grill. Leave this on the skillet for about 3-4 minutes on low heat. When the sandwich is done being cooked you can garnish it with parmigiano reggiano cheese and cut the sandwich in half. Serves 2. Enjoy!
