Lets start this sandwich by roasting some bell peppers.

Slice, deseed and splash your peppers with a touch of olive oil. Crank your oven up to 500 and roast your peppers for about 20-25 minutes.

You can tell they’re done when they start to shrivel and get a little color on their skins.

When your peppers are cool to the touch go ahead and pull the skins off then slice them into strips.

Let’s make a little dressing for our sandwich.

In a bowl combine some olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a little salt and pepper. Give that a whisk…

Then drizzle it on a sliced loaf of french bread.

Let’s build our sandwich!

Start with a nice layer of salami…

Top that with some thinly sliced prosciutto…

Next throw on your roasted bell peppers…

And a few fresh basil leaves…

Lookin pretty good huh?

Last but certainly not least cover those beautiful ingredients with a few thick slices of smooth and buttery havarti cheese.

The original sandwich I ate had fresh mozzarella on it which was super good but at the moment I’m in a very committed relationship with havati.

Put this into your warm oven just until your bread gets toasty and your cheese becomes melty.

Melty and toasty, my favorite combination.

Slice it up, serve it up and enjoy this sandwich with a nice glass of wine or a refreshing glass of lemon-aid, whichever suits you best.

P.S. So I recently got myself a fancy schmancy (incredibly confusing) new camera. What do you think?

    Oh gosh, anything with salami, prosciutto, or melted cheese is enough to make me drool, but all three on a sub roll? I’ve found lunch.
