Mozzarella and Pepper sandwich special... Italiano!

In the summer we can sometimes get bored of the usual traditional cheese and pickle sandwich, lets be honest does it really excite your taste buds?

So why not try something different! I have created an Italiano inspired sandwich fit for anyones lunch box!

You will need:

5-ounce jar roasted red bell peppers drained and roughly chopped for quickness or roast your own pepper!
1 pinch hot pepper flakes or chili
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
Fresh mozzarella torn into pieces
1/2 thin 18-inch brown baguette, sliced lengthwise with interior crumb removed

To Make...

1. Combine the peppers, chili, oregano and mozzarella in a bowl and mix

2. With this mixture fill the baguette

3. Close the baguette and wrap it tightly in cling film, then in aluminum foil

4. Place the sandwich at the bottom of the fridge using something heavy so the weight compresses the sandwich and allows the juices from the cheese to soak into the bread.

What a delicious Italiano take on a sandwich! Perfect for taking out for an outdoor meal, picnic or for your lunchbox!
