I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Spinach and Cheese Panini

Very quick to make and good too.  The best part is it's low in calories.  A little shaved turkey or chicken would be really good and even more filling.  It's only about  150 calories without the meat.

 (makes 1)

*1 cup baby spinach (stems removed)
*4-6 cherry (or grape) tomatoes, sliced
*2 small mushrooms, sliced (optional)
*1/8 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
*1 sandwich thin (I like the honey wheat)
*sprinkle of dried oregano
*sprinkle of dried basil

~Slice sandwich thin.
~Arrange spinach over bottom of sandwich thin.
~Place tomatoes over spinach.
~Sprinkle oregano & basil over the tomatoes.
~Place sliced mushrooms over the tomatoes.
~Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top.
~Put top bun over cheese.
~Spray a small skillet (or a Panini maker) with a cooking spray.
~Cook over medium-low heat.
~If using a small skillet, place a heavy skillet or aluminum lined brick on top of the sandwich.
~Cook until both sides are a golden brown (if using a skillet, you will have to flip the sandwich).
