How to make it

  1. Preheat the panini grill to medium-high heat.For each sandwich: Slice off the doomed top of a baguette portion to create a flat grilling surface. Split the baguette to create top and bottom halves.
  2. Spread a layer of pesto inside each baguette half. On the bottom half layer some mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and more mozarella. Close the sandwich with the top baguette half.Grill two panini at a time, with the lid closed, until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted, 5 to 6 minutes .
