- Slice off the domed tops of the ciabatta bread; the rolls should now be about 1 inch thick; split rolls horizontally.
- Spread a thin layer or the tuna mixture over the bottom halves of the rolls.
- Follow with the oven-roasted tomatoes, about 3 slices per sandwich.
- Sprinkle a fistful of chopped arugula over each panino; drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
- Grill each sandwich for about 3 minutes until the bread is a light golden brown and the filling is warm.
