Stuffed Italian Sandwich

Stuffed Italian SandwichThis impressive sandwich is stuffed with a bounty of favorite Italian meats, cheeses and condiments. Take a trip to your local Italian specialty store to find such delectable items as pancetta (an Italian bacon) and mortadella (the original baloney).

Recipe Ingredients:

1 large round hearty bread loaf, unsliced
2 tablespoons Italian dressing
8 slices provolone cheese
2 ounces salami, sliced
1 (2.25-ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
8 ounces mild Italian sausage, cooked and sliced
1 (1/2-inch-thick) slice red onion
4 slices mortadella
6 tablespoons pizza sauce
6 pepperoncini, drained and sliced
3 ounces pancetta, cooked and sliced
4 ounces sliced turkey
4 ounces sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and sliced
2 tablespoons BUITONI Refrigerated Freshly Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place bread on a baking sheet. Remove top one-fourth of loaf. With fingers, hollow out bread top and bottom without breaking through crust.
  2. Spread Italian salad dressing evenly inside bottom of loaf. Place half of the provolone cheese slices across bottom of bread. Layer the following ingredients: salami, black olives, sausage, onion, mortadella, pizza sauce, pepperoncini, pancetta, turkey, sun-dried tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, pesto and remaining slices of provolone.
  3. Replace top onto bread. Place another baking sheet on top of bread and top with a 5 to 10 pound weighted object. Allow to sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Sandwich should be compressed, but not smashed. Cut into wedges, and serve.
