Zucchini, Mozz & Sun-Dried Tomato Panini
with Pesto Mayo & Italian-Seasoned Potato Wedges
Somewhere along the line, sandwiches were deemed lunch food only. Yet sandwiches (better yet, panini) could not be more dinner-worthy. Case in point: these panini! Sautéed zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, melty mozz, and a lemony pesto spread are layered between ciabatta bread then pan-pressed to crispy, golden perfection. Roasted potato wedges complete the meal.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Cut potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges. Toss on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of oil, ½ tsp Italian Seasoning (1 tsp for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. (You’ll use more Italian Seasoning later.) • Roast on top rack until browned and tender, 20-25 minutes.
• While potatoes roast, trim and cut zucchini crosswise into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Quarter lemon. Halve ciabattas. Finely chop sun-dried tomatoes.
• Toss zucchini in a medium bowl with a drizzle of olive oil (large drizzle for 4 servings), half the garlic powder (be sure to measure; we sent more), ½ tsp Italian Seasoning (1 tsp for 4), salt, and pepper. (Use the remaining Italian Seasoning as you like.) • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini in a single layer; cook until golden brown and just tender, 2-4 minutes per side. Turn off heat; transfer to a plate. Wipe out pan.
• Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, pesto, and a squeeze of lemon juice (a big squeeze for 4 servings). Season with salt and pepper.
• Spread a layer of pesto mayo onto cut sides of ciabattas. • Fill ciabattas with mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, and a few slices of zucchini. (You may have some left over—feel free to serve on the side, if you like.)
• Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for zucchini over medium heat. Once hot, add sandwiches; press down with a spatula. Cook, pressing occasionally, until bread is toasted and cheese melts, 2-4 minutes per side. (For 4 servings, cook in batches if needed.) TIP: If pan seems dry when flipping sandwiches, add another drizzle of oil or ½ TBSP butter. Lower heat if bread browns too quickly. • Transfer panini to a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, halve on a diagonal. • Divide panini between plates and serve with potato wedges on the side.
