Portabello Mushroom and Basil Pesto Panini

I finally used my panini press for a panini, instead of using it as a little electric grill.

This recipe was created for Babble’s Family Kitchen.

Sliced Ciabatta, or other sturdy Bread
4 portabello mushrooms, sliced

If you don’t have a panini press, see this post at Panini Happy for alternative ways of cooking a panini without a panini press.
