Vegetable Panini

Crusty bread, warm cheesy filling, and a plate full of vegetables. Pretty much a perfect meal for me! Panini sandwiches are a treat to have and you do not have to have a panini grill to make them. All you need is a full tea kettle and a greased frying pan. Let me fill you in on the rest...

Ciabatta rolls from the grocery store bakery (these were multi-grain)
Any vegies you have to sautee (I used onion, zucchini, peppers and tomoatoes)
Cheese of your choice ( I used mozzarella and feta)
A few basil leaves if you have them
Garlic Salt

Sautee your vegies in a pan (I used cast iron skillet) in olive oil. Slice the ciabatta rolls and sprinkle cheese on one half. Top with sauteed vegies and spread out the basil leaves. Place the other half of ciabatta on top of the filling. Sprinkle the same oily pan that you sauteed in with the garlic salt. Place the fill sandwiched into the pan and top with a large plate. Put the full tea kettle on top of the plate and press down. On medium heat toast the sandwich on one side and flip over replacing the tea kettle. Toast the other side until brown and crispy. Cut on a diagonal and devour!
