  • 4 whole wheat panini buns
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise

Garlic Rapini:
  • 1 bunch rapini (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pinch hot pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Cut sausages in half lengthwise. In nonstick skillet, fry sausages over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crusty, brown and no longer pink inside, about 8 minutes. Cut into bite-size pieces, if desired.

Garlic Rapini: Meanwhile, trim bases of rapini stalks. In large deep skillet of boiling water, cover and cook rapini until stalks are tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and chill under cold water; drain and pat dry. Chop coarsely; set aside.

In same skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic and hot pepper flakes until garlic begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Add rapini and salt ; sauté until hot.

Cut buns in half; spread cut side of bottoms with mayonnaise and mustard. Top with rapini, sausages and cheese. Broil, along with top halves cut side up, until cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
