1large Italian loaf
3Tpestostore-bought or homemade
Sliced fresh mozzarella or provolone cheese
Jarred roasted red bell peppers
Chopped olivesI like Kalamatas
Halve the bread lengthwise and remove the insides of the bread to make a trench on both halves. Spread each half with pesto then layer the bottom half with olives, peppers, tomato, cheese and meats. Place the top of the bread back on top of the sandwich. Place the bread in a baking dish and wrap with foil or plastic wrap. Weigh the sandwich down with another dish and heavy weights (I used the gallon of milk I had in the fridge) and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
