Italian Grilled Sandwiches

  • Prep Time 5 min
  • Total Time 20 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 small ciabatta breads
  • 4 tsp Chili Pepper Seasoning Paste 20 mL
  • 2 cups sliced and grilled vegetables such as eggplant and zucchini 500 mL
  • 2 red peppers, roasted and peeled
  • 12 very thin slices Italian salami such as Genoa, Calabrese and/or sopressatta
  • 1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese 125 mL
  • 1/4 cup shredded Italian cheese such as fontina 60 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Cut four approx. 4-in. (10 cm) pieces from the ciabatta bread; reserve the remainder for another use. Split each piece in half crosswise and spread each top and bottom with pepper paste.

  • Step 2

    Divide eggplant, zucchini and red pepper evenly, layering onto four pieces of bread. Add salami and shredded cheeses and close sandwiches, pressing firmly to flatten.

  • Step 3

    Wrap sandwiches in foil and place in a large skillet. Flatten by placing a second heavy pan overtop. Weigh down with heavy cans, if necessary, and cook over medium heat for about 5 min. per side. (Sandwiches can also be heated on an outdoor grill.) Serve hot with a fresh green salad.
