Soak the sun-dried tomatoes
While the tomatoes soak, prepare the squash and greens.
Prep and cook the squash
- Trim the ends from the squash; cut the squash on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
While the squash cooks, prepare the garlic.
Prep and cook the garlic and greens

Assemble and cook the panini

Transfer to a cutting board and slice in half.
While the panini cook, finish the squash.
