I made this without the ham and it was still great! I used French bread, and herbs from the garden. Thanks Kitz!
A truly gourmet recipe! WOW! My mouth was watering just reading the ingredients for this superb sandwich. Pesto and peppers and prosciutto and olives: YUM! And these sandwiches really were every bit as wonderfully yummy as I'd anticipated! I made them exactly to the recipe - except for using lemon juice instead of water. I also added the (optional) thinly sliced red onion and sliced olives. If you're making these, be warned: anticipate people being keen to eat more than they would have eaten had some more averagely tasty sandwiches been on offer! I'll make these again, not only for others but also for fabulous take-to-work lunches! Thank you so much, KITTENCAL, for another exceptional 5+++++ recipe!
The pesto-like spread is wonderful. I had serrano ham which I used in place of the proscuitto along with arugula and fresh mozarella and roasted peppers. I too used a bit more ham--but loved this sandwich. I know I will be using this recipe again.
