Not sure what I did wrong, but mine was terrible. Still, I have all the ingredients for more, so will try again.
Pear, Pecorino, and Prosciutto Panini
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr
If you prefer cooked prosciutto, sauté it until it's crisp. You'll add some crunch to this sandwich. Parmigiano-Reggiano is a good substitute for pecorino Romano cheese.
