Italian Sandwich

Italian Sandwich: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I am going to start out by letting you know that the sodium on this sandwich is incredibly high. Like your daily allowance of sodium in one sandwich high. When making this sandwich I tried to go light on the amount of meat and cheese, because of the high sodium. I used about three slices of each meat, two slices of cheese and enough roasted red pepper to cover the bread.

With that being said, this sandwich is incredibly delicious. Probably the most delicious sandwich I have ever made. I just wish it was not so high in sodium so I could eat it more often.

When I was shopping for the ingredients to make this sandwich, I found a pack of Italian meats at Costco that contained three different types of Italian meat. Absolutely perfect for this sandwich. You can use any combination of Italian meats you choose or find.

Italian Sandwich


  • ciabatta roll
  • sliced provolone cheese
  • salame
  • capocollo
  • prosciutto
  • roasted red peppers


  1. Cut the ciabatta roll in half horizontally. Toast the cut side of the rolls in a dry skillet or on a griddle, until golden brown.
  2. Place the ciabatta roll on a baking sheet with browned sides facing up.
  3. Place a few slices of salame on one of the pieces of ciabatta. Top the salame with a piece of provolone and then top the provolone with a few slices of capocollo.
  4. On the other piece of ciabatta place a piece of provolone topped with a few slices of prosciutto. Top the prosciutto with a layer of red peppers.
  5. Turn the broiler on high and place the baking sheet in the oven until the cheese melts. Watch carefully so the sandwich does not burn.
  6. After removing the baking sheet, combine the two sides of ciabatta.
