This recipe is a great opportunity to use the panini maker you registered for, but probably have only used once. If you don’t have this specialized appliance, you also can use a griddle or large skillet. If you’re really in a pinch, you can try Brian and Lisa’s creative method for making these delicious grilled sandwiches using a pan, a brick and a plate. The sandwiches feature fried summer squash and zucchini, roasted red peppers, red onions, goat cheese and pesto. The recipe makes a satisfying sandwich.
You can find summer squash and zucchini at farmers markets and roadside stands across the state. To find a location near you, go to www.ncfarmfresh.com.
