Turkey, Eggplant, Mozzarella, Pesto Panini
September 21, 2010 § 2 Comments
Hello friends! I’m finally getting back to blogging after a busy weekend and lots of homework. I made a yummy dinner last night and was able to use some of the leftovers for tonight’s delicious panini creation.
I decided to make a quick and easy dinner last night since I was out for most of the day running errands and doing a little shopping.
Roasted eggplant and spaghetti topped with Pomodoro sauce and pesto.
I roasted the eggplant the exact same way I do when I make eggplant parmesan. I do every single step except for baking it with the sauce and cheese.
I had a late meeting on campus and was starving by the time I arrived home. I quickly took out my Cuisinart panini press and got to work assembling my sandwich. I spread pesto on each slice of bread then added the turkey, eggplant, lettuce, and cheese. Five minutes later…it was time to eat!
This was an amazing combination of flavors! But, it will never come close to the eggplant panini’s that Troy used to make while we were both working at Mrs. London’s. I loved how he always made sure that there was at least one for me to eat during my lunch break…what a guy! :-D.
Question of the night: What’s the best panini you’ve ever had?
