Makes: 6 servings
Start to Finish 25 mins
Tote-and-Slice Loaf Sandwich
  • 3/4  cup  dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
  • 1 1  pound loaf  Italian or French bread
  • 1/2 8  ounce package  cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3  cup  basil pesto
  • 4  ounces  thinly sliced provolone cheese
  • 8  ounces  thinly sliced peppered or regular salami
  • 1  medium  fresh banana pepper or 8 bottled peppers, stemmed, seeded, and sliced
  • 4  ounces  thinly sliced provolone cheese
  • 1/2  medium  red onion, thinly sliced
  •  Small salad peppers and/or pimiento-stuffed green olives (optional)

1. Place tomatoes in a small bowl. Add enough boiling water to cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain tomatoes and place in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Or finely chop tomatoes by hand.

2. Split loaf in half horizontally. Remove some soft bread from the bottom half of the loaf, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell.

3. Spread cream cheese on cut sides of both bread halves. Spread top half with dried tomatoes and bottom half with pesto. On bottom half layer provolone cheese, salami, banana peppers, onion, and loaf top, spread side down.
