I liked this meal, though I definitely did not get the right bread for paninis. It ended up little too crunchy which made it harder to eat.

Too hot to use the oven so made into a delish grilled veggie "Caprese" instead.

Not impressed - fried meat and egg are good, but there was too much going on with this salad.

Quite delicious! Left out the pancetta and eggs as we felt like the tuna was enough.
