“It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato”
Lewis Grizzard (American Columnist 1946-1994)
……an easy tomato pannino for those luscious, home grown tomatoes…..
Basic Italian Pannino
*2 red ripe tomatoes
*4 slices crusty Italian bread
*1 tablespoon extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil
*small handful fresh basil leaves, washed, and dried gently with paper towels (leaves only, no stems)
*Pinch of salt to taste
Drizzle olive oil on bread slices. Cut mozzarella into 1/4″ thick slices. Place on top of bread slices. Place tomato slices on top of cheese. Tear basil leaves by hand into small pieces, place on top of tomato slices, add a pinch of salt, another quick drizzle of olive oil and top with the other slice. You can also grill this for a few minutes on each side or eat cold.
