Let me tell you this panini is fantastic! You have to try this one!

This Grilled Veggie Proscuitto Pesto Panni topped with shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano and basil is the perfect sandwich.

Sometimes a good sandwich just does the deed perfectly. This grilled veggie proscuitto panini is perfectly satisfying and ready in just a few minutes.  It has a great crunch from the olive oil toasted ciabatta. It's salty, savoury, and has a creaminess from the parmesan cheese and basil pesto. Just so good!
