This sandwich was fantastic! I used two long flat ciabatta loaves and did everything else exactly as stated in the recipe. We had them for supper last night along with two hungry american missionaries that we were feeding and everyone gave it a hearty two thumbs up! The boys went back for seconds and thirds actually! I could only have a small slice as I am on a strict diet but I sure enjoyed that small slice and it took alot of will power to keep from going back for more! Thanks for a great recipe that I know I will make again!

this is a great party recipe! so easy to make and the explosion of flavors is incredible. while it is really delicious fresh from the oven, it can also be served cold.
