Fact: Panino = 1 sandwich, panini = more than one sandwich
I was craving veggies + good bread so I decided to make a simple Zucchini paninO for dinner tonight, and boy did it hit the spot! Here's the easy peasy recipe:
1/2 zucchini, sliced lengthwise
2 oz sliced mozzarella
4 pieces of your favorite hearty rye bread (like the kind PB buys me in PHL)
olive oil or olive oil spray
Heat your panini maker (pm).
When warm, spray the pm lightly with olive oil.
Grill the zucchini slices for about 3 minutes total (3 minutes each side if you are using a regular grill).
Take the zucchini off the pm and put aside.
Spray the pm again with olive oil.
Assemble your sandwiches (1 slice of mozz and half the zucchini on each).
Put on the pm and grill for about 5 minutes until the cheese is nice and melty and the panino has those nice grill marks.
Put on a plate, slice in half, and enjoy!!!!
Yum! I had mine with 1/2 a serving of terra chips and a sliced cucumber on the side. it was amazing.
