Info
This recipe came from a cookbook I just picked up called Panini. I have another panini cookbook that has elegant traditional old wold paninis. This one has paninis that are more like the panini as a comfort food. This sandwich takes a traditional Philly cheesesteak and puts an Italian twist on it. The panini receives a fresh pesto, followed by grilled steak and fontina cheese. This is topped with sauteed fresh garlic, onion and red pepper. The panini was served on an Italian sub roll, which I didn’t think would work grilled, but it was excellent. This was one of the best steak and cheese sandwiches I’ve ever tasted and was well worth the work involved.
