    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a killer sandwich, great to make on football Sunday for the guys! Add in some Italian-style cold cuts if desired. Plan ahead, the basil/Parmesan mixture has to be prepared 8-24 hours in advance and chilled. Prep time does not include refrigeration time for the basil mixture.

    7. 7
      Cut the sandwich crosswise into about 6-8 pieces.

      This sandwich was excellent! The spread looked so good that we couldn't wait for the refrigeration time, so I'm sure it will be even better tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

      Fabulous. Because I have picky eaters, I pureed the artichokes in with the basil/oil/cheese spread. So I had PLENTY of spread. In fact, kids complained that it squished out of the sandwich too easily/much. Oh la dee da. I put on about 5 ounces each of provolone and salami. Used romaine because I have so much in the fridge right now. Fantastic and will definitely make this one again.
