Turkey, Smoked Mozzarella and Olive-Spinach Pesto Panini

I created this when I realized that I had all of the ingredients in my refrigerator and cabinets and it’s the best panini I have ever made. I love using smoked mozzarella with the punch of green olive pesto.

Instructions

  1. 1For the pesto, in a food processor, combine all ingredients and chop to desired consistency. (Makes approximately 3/4 cup pesto for more paninis.)
  2. 2Then, heat panini grill to low-medium heat.
  1. 1Spread a dab of olive oil on outside of bread (turn over) and spread pesto on one piece and place cheese on the other, then add turkey and optional apple.
  2. 2Grill to desired look, melted cheese and browned bread.
