¾ pound whole fresh mozzarella, sliced in ¼-inch-thick rounds

2 red bell peppers, roasted and sliced


1 cup fresh arugula or basil leaves

Brush 1 side of each bread slice with olive oil or slather with butter. Place 4 pieces of bread on a work surface oiled side down. Top each with a layer of mozzarella, a layer of roasted pepper, a pinch of salt and a few leaves of arugula or basil. Place the other pieces of bread on top.

Heat a large skillet or a panini press and cook the sandwiches until cheese is softened and bread is lightly toasted on both sides, about 4 minutes.

Serves four.
