Prosciutto, Pear, and Goat Cheese Panini

We ate lunch at a local coffee and sandwich shop a few weeks back, and ordered one of their paninis. It was filled with goat cheese (my favorite), and slices of fresh pear and prosciutto. Delicious. And we thought, hey, we have a panini maker we haven’t used in maybe 8 months, why not dig...
