very nice! I like warm sandwich, so I arrange to panini. I eat with rosemary potato wedge and zucchini chip. Fantastic dinner!

Torta is Spanish for "sandwich"—and is usually a hefty stack of meat, beans, and veggies. Our lightened version packs pork, beans, and veggies between fresh baguette slices for a super sandwich that can feed the whole family.
