    NEWS ON THE MARCH — recipe

    Grilled Ham & Mozz Pesto Panini

    I have been making these delightful sandwiches lately. Easy to make and so delicious!

    2 pieces of bread
    2 slices of thick-cut ham
    Some thinly cut mozzarella slices

    Spread a thin layer of pesto on both pieces of bread. Put the mozzarella slices on top of the pesto and the ham on top of the mozzarella. Put it all together as a sandwich. Heat up your Geroge Foreman grill (or panini maker if you are lucky enough to have one). Put a thin layer of mayonnaise on one side of the sandwich and place it face down on the grill. Put a thin layer of mayonnaise on the top of the sandwich and put the top of the grill or panini maker down. Cook until the outside is browned and the mozzarella is starting to melt. Enjoy!

    Pesto Recipe

    The Pesto recipe I follow is pretty basic, but the trick is to let it sit for an hour or more after you make it, then blend it again later. It turns the pesto into a creamy green butter-like spread.

    2 cups fresh basil leaves
    ⅓ cup pine nuts
    3 large cloves garlic
    ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
    ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
    salt & pepper to taste

    Put it all in the food processor and blend the heck out it. Then let it sit for an hour or more. Then blend the heck out of it again. Enjoy!
