The word panini refers to sandwiches that are pressed and toasted. I make panini for my fellow teachers and friends. For potlucks, make several and cut them into fourths. —Martha Muellenberg, Vermillion, South Dakota

  • 4 ciabatta rolls, split
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) marinara or spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 1 container (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 jar (7-1/2 ounces) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 pound sliced deli turkey


  1. Spread each ciabatta bottom with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce. Top with half the cheese; add the artichokes, tomatoes, turkey and remaining cheese. Spread each ciabatta top with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce; place over turkey.
  2. Cook on a panini maker or indoor grill until cheese is melted, 4-5 minutes. Place remaining marinara sauce in a small microwave-safe bowl; cover and microwave on high until heated through. Serve with sandwiches.
