Presto! Tasty panini done in 10 minutes.
slices Italian or Vienna bread
tablespoons refrigerated basil pesto
lb thinly sliced cooked roast beef (from deli)
cup thin slices roasted red bell peppers (from a jar)
slices (3/4 oz each) provolone cheese
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Heat closed contact grill 5 minutes. Spread one side of each slice of bread with pesto. On 2 slices of the bread, layer beef, roasted peppers and cheese; top with remaining slices of bread, pesto side down. Brush outside of sandwiches with butter.
When grill is heated, place sandwiches on bottom grill surface. Close grill; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
Refrigerate the unused pesto; it adds great flavor to soups and sandwiches. For longer storage, freeze it in small portions in tightly covered containers.
