  • Food processor

  • Panini grill


  1. Pulse basil, mint, and garlic in a food processor (mini works best) until finely minced. Add the peas, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pulse to a chunky purée. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

  2. Spread 12tablespoon of butter on one side of each slice of bread. Turn them over and spread 2 tablespoons of the pesto on 4 of the slices, and lay 3 slices of the cheese on the other 4 slices. Place the pesto slices over the cheese slices.

  3. Heat a panini grill according to the manufacturer’s directions. Grill sandwiches (in batches if needed) until nicely browned on the outside and the cheese is melted and gooey. Serve immediately.
