Veggie Panini Sandwich

Yeahhhh!!!! after a long wait and a long fight with my miles I finally got my Panini Grill and I could not wait any longer to try out hot panini sandwiches.

I had no clue how to start so I browsed the www and finally made my own version. Here are the ingredients
Cibata Bread
1/2 Green bell pepper sliced long
1/2 onion sliced long
2 slices of Montery Jack Cheese(You should most likely use Mozaralla but I wanted it spicy so chose this)
1 tbsp hot mustard
2 tbsp pesto sauce (store bought)
2-3 Sun dried tomatoes (I always have a jar at home... I love these for pasta too)
Salt, pepper and 1 tbsp dried basil (fresh is even more better)

So here is what i did.
I sauted the onions and green pepper until they were nice and brown something like you would do for a Fajita. Put them aside.

Pre-heated the panini.
Cut the bread into two halves.
Applied pesto sauce on both the halves.
Put hot mustard on both sides
Put each slice of cheese on each half.
The below steps I only did for the lower half
Put the sun-dried tomatoes (cut into pieces)
Put the onion-green pepper.
Added salt,pepper and basil.
Cover this with the top half of the bread and put it on the pre-heated panini and slowly press it down as it gets heated. When you see the cheese melting take it out. Cut diagonal and serve hot with chips.

You can use other types of bread too but from what I read Cibata bread was the most used and of course it tasted really good.
