Notes

  1. If you do not own a panini press, you could just cook it on the stovetop like you would do a grilled cheese sandwich.  I really like the texture the panini press yields, though.
  2. Instead of a large tomato, you could use a handful of cherry tomatoes.  You could also use roma tomatoes.
