I made this for my parents when they came to visit for the weekend and it was a hit! We served it hot and I followed the recipe exactly.
Excellent recipe, see my photo. The only thing I changed besides adding hot pepper rings is the following... Mix (or chop) the onions, tomatoes, and hot pepper rings and mix together in bowl and drizzle with desired amount of italian dressing.. you can chop your lettuce and add to the mix only if the mix will all get used in one setting.. otherwise if you don't use, you will have wilted lettuce. This mixture plus lettuce goes on the sub AFTER IT IS BAKED IN OVEN! If you put the tomatoes and lettuce on while baking you will have mushy veggies. Maybe you like mushy veggies.... Thanks for sharing JL!
Oh, yea! Definately a keeper. Walmart didn't have capicola (bummer), so I didn't use it. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I made this sandwich hot, which I prefer. I used the roasted red peppers as the recipe instructed. They were good. I think pepperocini's might also be good. I will try them next time. Thanks!
Thanks Jess.....here in Australia we dont have a lot of sub shops so its really great to find an italian one thats so simple yet so tasty Cheers from Australia
