What do you have for lunch on a lazy rainy saturday? This past weekend we had this amazing Mozzarella Caprese Arugula with Walnut Pesto Wrap.
This was one of those recipe ideas that comes from necessity. Kinda like survival of the fittest. We were all hungry and the fridge was really empty, it was pouring rain outside and neither my husband or myself wanted to go out to the store. Since I was starving, I peeked into the fridge figuring I could find something … anything. We didn’t even have eggs – it was bad. There I found 1/4 block of mozzarella cheese, some cherry tomatoes, a container of arugula, and some leftover walnut pesto, oh and lets not forget two remaining pieces of flatbread that was in there too. What seemed to be a little bleak turned out to be a deliciously yummy lunch. It didn’t take long for the wheels to turn before I thought to make panini wraps with melted mozzarella, arugula, tomatoes and of course slathered in walnut pesto.
I pulled out my panini press and my phone (for pictures of course). I mean what kind of food blogger would I be without some drool worthy photos – right?!
Anyway, I plugged in my panini press and began to prep. After slicing some mozzarella cheese and some cherry tomatoes, I spread some pesto onto each wrap and then a few pieces of sliced mozzarella cheese, and then topped with some arugula salad, and sliced cherry tomatoes. I rolled up the wrap and placed onto the hot press – seam side down. Grilled the wrap for about 5 minutes and that was it. I sliced them all up into sections and we all had lunch.
So yummy and delicious!
