What is a Panini
A panini is a hot sandwich made with grilled bread and fillings.
The bread is usually a type of Italian bread, such as ciabatta or focaccia, but any type of bread can be used. The fillings can be anything, but are typically meats, cheeses, and vegetables.
They are cooked on a grill or press, which gives the bread a crispy exterior and melts the cheese.
Paninis are a popular lunchtime food, as they are quick and easy to make.
They can also be customized to suit any taste, making them a versatile option for any meal.

Mozzarella cheese is a type of cheese that is traditionally made from buffalo milk. However, it can also be made from cow’s milk.
The name comes from the Italian city of Naples, where this cheese was first created.
Mozzarella cheese has a soft, white flesh with a slightly chewy texture.
It is often used in pizzas and pastas, as well as in salads and sandwiches.
The flavor of mozzarella cheese can vary depending on how it is made, but it is generally mild and slightly sweet.
Arugula, also known as rocket salad or roquette, is a green leafy vegetable with a peppery flavor.
It is most commonly used in salads, but can also be added to soups, sandwiches, and pizzas.
Arugula is a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as iron and calcium.
When storing arugula, it is best to keep it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, where it will stay fresh for up to five days.
