Caprese Panini

I love a caprese salad,but until my tomatoes are ready and I have to use roma's well..I have to wait..But, I made some foccacia, took some basil leaves,pine nuts, parmesan,salt and pepper, some mozzarella and thin sliced romas,and proceded to make a sammie I put evoo,pine nuts,basil,garlic in the f/p and made a paste, add some parmesan, add salt and pepper. Cut your foccacia in half and smear with the paste, then cover with mozz, add thin sliced tomato and top that with more mozz put on the top of the foccacia and plop on the panini press.. Heat til golden and cheese is melted..Grab your's and run
enjoy

My mouth is watering! This is also good with a thin layer of prosciutto.

Oh kades, that sounds SO wonderful. I wish you'd taken a picture. Then again, maybe it's best you didn't, or alot of us would be drooling on our keyboards and shorting out our computers....

cj - I was going to tell you that I add prosciutto to mine but Andy beat me to it! I have also added baby romaine or other baby greens to this panino along with some roasted red peppers, if I have them.

Basically, on Day 1 I make a salad of baby greens, prosciutto, kalamata olives, water-packed mozzarella, tomatoes, and dress with a homemade basil oil (oil, basil, garlic, kosher salt). On Day 2 I make panini. I'm going to have to try your spread. I can taste this and it's making me crazy!!!!!!

I was in Rome last summer. Tried to hook up with Urmaniac but unfortunately she went on vacation the week I was there. One time I was on the run and bought a simple sandwich from a stall. Between the two slices of bread was nothing but fresh mozz, evoo, thick tomato slices, and a thin spread of mayo. It didn't look like much but OMG. Who knew such few simple ingredients could produce such a heavenly and unforgettable experience?!

I've made the same sandwich a few times already since returning home, always to startled gustatory delight by first-time tasters. Lesson I learned is, take it from the Italians -- a few simple excellent-quality ingredients is all you need for a fantastic sammie! :-)
