Lasagna Panini

I've fallen in love with my new panini maker.    Sifting through recipes on Pinterest, and this Lasagna Grilled Cheese from Joy the Baker caught my eye.    I don't usually cook at lunch just for myself, but I just kept scrolling past the pin, thinking how great it looked.  

I changed it up a bit, using fresh grape tomatoes instead of canned, and dried basil.    Fast, easy, delicious and I felt like I was treating myself to something special.   Thanks so much Joy for the recipe, be sure to go check out her blog for lots of other wonderful things   :)
