Ok, so these sandwiches were the most delicious "cheap eat" I had (next to pistachio gelato) while I was in Italy. They are really easy to make and a nice change when you want a warm sandwich.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ciabatta roll (about 2 or 3 inches x4 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons olive tapenade (I've used just kalamata or a mediterranean blend)
  • 2 -4 slices prosciutto
  • 2 slices provolone cheese (I also use Brie)


  1. Preheat the oven to Broil.
  2. Cut the roll in half and lay open faced on a cookie sheet.
  3. Spread the tapenade on one half and put the prosciutto on top.
  4. Lay the cheese on the other half.
  5. Put the open faced sandwich under the broiler until it's to your liking. (I like the cheese melty and/or the bread a little crunchy.).

Simple, direct and tasty. Used pesto instead of tepenade. Delicious! (I don't suppose you have a recipe for pistachio gelato?)
