    1 cup Basil Pesto

    1 pound Mozzarella (sliced)
    Salt and freshly ground Pepper
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
    crushed Red Pepper Flakes

    Place the sandwiches on the grill and place a kitchen brick on top and cook until toasted, about 5 to 10 minutes per side.
  • 3
    2 Serranos (chopped and stems removed)
    1 Jalapeno (chopped and stem removed)
    2 pickled Jalapenos
    1 pickled Cherry Pepper
    Remove from heat and cut in half to serve. For more heat, combine the peppers in a food processor, pulse until finely minced, then add the pesto, and pulse until combined. Serve spicy pesto with adult sandwiches.

    Helpful Tip:
    1. For varying taste palettes, don't overload the panino with pesto. Rather, serve a dish of pesto on the side.
