Pesto, Tomato & Mozzarella Paninis

These paninis have been a go-to in my family for a long time because they are so easy to throw together and require minimal ingredients. We also adore these paninis because it is so easy to make a couple extra to have as lunches for the next day! I should start by saying that I don't really have measurements for this recipe because I have always done it by eye. I hope my pictures give you an idea of about how much I use, but you could play around with ingredients to cater to your tastes.
Start with bread - I have used all kinds of bread in this recipe: baguette, sandwich buns, sliced bread... and it all works! Prep whatever bread you choose to use by cutting it in half.
Then, spread a little pesto on each side of the bread. I would estimate that I use about a tablespoon of pesto on each side of the bread.
Cover the bread with some slices of tomato - I use about a half of a tomato for each panini.
Finally, top the sandwiches with some pieces of mozzarella cheese - I put 5-6 pieces on each panini.
Toast the sandwiches using a panini press for 4 minutes (or until the cheese is melted).
