Took this to a church picnic and it was a big hit. Taste is a wonderful combination of savory oils and herbs and is delicious. The basil is a nice touch. Even the people watching their carbs ate the innards like a salad. Cutting instructions weren't included. I started off slicing it across, but the "sandwiches" were too large. I finally settled on slicing it down the length of the loaf and then across 5 times so I had 6 sections/side, giving me the 12 servings/loaf. This works if you have a wide loaf of Italian bread. I also had to use toothpicks to hold the sandwiches together. However, it is so thick, the toothpicks were really too small. I recommend larger skewers. I would definately make this again for a social for family gathering. Don't waste the bread you dug out. I used it to make a small breakfast casserole. You can also use it to make a small bread pudding, bread crumbs, etc.
