Caprese Press Sandwich


Serves 6-8

1 loaf ciabatta bread
8 oz. sliced fresh mozzarella
½ cup basil pesto
½ cup Bellisari’s Calabrian & Sweet Tomato Fennel Spread
Salt and pepper to taste

For the balsamic reduction
⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. honey

Preheat your panini maker to high. To make the balsamic reduction, add the balsamic vinegar and the honey to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer over low heat until thickened and reduced. Don't let it get too thick, just thick enough to drizzle it on the sandwiches. Spread the pesto sauce inside the sandwiches, about 2 Tbsp. per side. Then add Bellisari’s Calabrian Pepper & Sweet Tomato Fennel Spread to both sides. Top the sandwiches with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. Drizzle some balsamic reduction sauce over the mozzarella slices. Place the sandwich on the press and close the press. Cook until the bread is toasted and cheese has softened.
