Paninis are perfect summer fare — and easy to make.
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup sliced onion
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
¼ teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
12 ounces deli roast beef (preferably low-sodium)
4 ounces reduced-fat provolone
4 hoagie (or hero) rolls
Heat oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium high. Add onions and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly soft. Sprinkle in sugar, salt and pepper. Continue cooking until veggies are soft. Push to one side. Add roast beef, tossing for 2 minutes to warm. Place ¼ of cheese on bottom half of each roll; top with roast beef and veggies. Close sandwiches, coat lightly on top and bottom with cooking spray and set aside. Wipe skillet clean. Place over medium-high heat. Place sandwiches in pan. Top with second skillet. Press down; cook sandwiches for 3 minutes, until browned. Turn and repeat, cooking until sandwiches are well browned and cheese melted.
Yield: Serves 4.
