Italian Sub with Soppressata, Mozzarella, Roasted Peppers, Arugula & Olive Spread


ciabatta rolls
kalamatta olives
fresh mozzarella, sliced
roasted red peppers, sliced
sweet or spicy soppresata
dried oregano
olive oil


Pop a couple spoonfuls of olives into a food processor and pulse a few times to finely chop. Smear the olive spread on the bottom piece of the ciabatta roll.
Top with a couple handfuls of arugula, followed by a few slices of fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers then the soppresata. Season with a little pepper if you like.
Drizzle a little olive oil and a sprinkle or oregano on the top half of the roll.


talian family dinners often start with antipasto; platters full of Italian cured meats, cheeses, olives and roasted peppers. I think I could eat antipasto everyday so it was my inspiration for this sandwich! In my opinion, a good Italian Sub MUST start with good bread, like this ciabatta roll. Nice crust on the outside and the inside is perfectly chewy. Its not overly doughy which I love too!

Inside that perfect roll are layers upon layers of goodness! At the base, a simple olive spread, then a whole lot of fresh arugula, slices of fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers and that perfectly meaty salty soppresata! A little sprinkle of oregano and you are all set to enjoy a fabulous antipasto inspired Italian Sub.
