Panini Express: 70 Delicious Recipes Hot Off the Press

By Lauren Chattman, Daniel Leader, Ellen Silverman
Taunton Press - 2008

A very simple and satisfying panini recipe. I grilled some asparagus in the oven, though the recipe also suggests using the panini press itself to cook them, which I thought was clever. My press is not ridged though, and the asparagus I had were fairly thick.

I used Brie as our local grocery store doesn't carry Taleggio, and it was just fine (though I'd like to try Taleggio sometime). I used ciabatta for the bread.

Only one thing I'd consider doing - cutting the asparagus. I noticed that we ended up pulling spears out of the sandwich as we ate them, so having them in pieces would keep more in!
