Ciabatta sandwich

Jamie's Dinners


Ciabatta snadwich of grilled vegitables with pesto and mozzarella

This sandwich is good for using up grilled veg like asparagus, courgettes, fennel and aubergine - wonderful just griddled on a griddle pan and dressed with some good olive oil, salt, freshly ground black pepper and fresh herbs. I keep any leftovers, stuff them into a chunk of ciabatta smeared with 1 tablespoon of pesto (see page 34) and add a little torn-up mozzarella. You could also add some grated Parmesan. Slices of prosciutto or grilled chicken pieces go really well too.

Wrap your sandwich up tightly in greaseproof paper and tinfoil before putting it in your lunchbox. Usually some juices come out of the mozzarella, so give the sarnie a good press down when youíve finished making it to let the bread soak up the moisture and actually become more tasty because of it. When I eat this sandwich, I peel off the paper and foil from one side and then keep peeling back as I eat. This way I donít get juice all over myself!
