    ms_bold's Note:

    I had seen Ina Garten prepare this sandwich on one of her Barefoot Contessa episodes. It looked to die for, and when I finally had time to try it, my suspicions were confirmed. It is so flavorful and just down right yummy. She also prepared a Fresh Pea soup to pair with it, I can't wait to try that, too.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Place the whole peppers on a sheet pan and place in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until the skins are completely wrinkled and the peppers are charred, turning them twice during roasting. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately cover it tightly with aluminum foil. Set aside for 30 minutes, or until the peppers are cool enough to handle.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
    4. 4
      Remove the stem from each pepper and cut them in quarters. Remove the peels and seeds and place the peppers in a bowl along with any juices that have collected. Discard the stems, peels, and seeds. Pour the oil and vinegar mixture over the peppers. Stir in the capers. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.
    5. 5
      To assemble the sandwiches, spread the bottom half of the loaf with the goat cheese. Add a layer of peppers and then a layer of basil leaves. Separate the onions into rings and spread out on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with the top half of the ciabatta and cut into individual servings.

      Thought this was a nice blend of flavours, then again, I love anything with goat cheese!! Next time I'd half the amount of kosher salt as I did find it a bit on the salty side. Thanks for posting!!

      This is utter deliciousness in pretty much every way. I followed another reviewer's advice and added no salt to the marinade - only sprinkled it on the sandwich. Roasting your own peppers is so much better than storebought that I have now replaced the jarred with them. I did not make the soup with these, but I have made another delicious creamless pea soup by Food Network's Ellie Krieger, and would definitely recommend it, especially if you shell the fresh peas yourself. I am already missing this sandwich and want to roast more peppers for another one!

      Excellent! Very easy to make and can't beat the flavor. I used Ciabatta Bread for the ciabatta bread.
