Cut each sausage lengthwise almost but not quite through the bottom; open up flat.
On 1/2 of each tortilla spread the salsa.
Top with a sausage link followed by 2 halves of the cheese.
Fold the other 1/2 of the tortilla over the filling and cook in a panini press 1-2 min. or till the cheese begins to melt.
Open the top half of each tortilla slightly and insert the basil leaves. Gently press down then serve.
