Prosciutto, peperonata and provolone rolls

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 4 people

A good condiment lifts any panino to another level. Here we've made a peperonata to add a piquant punch to an otherwise simple sandwich. It's worth having on hand in the fridge, so we recommend making a double batch.

  • 4 sourdough torpedo rolls, halved (or a sourdough baguette, cut into lengths)
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 8 thin slices prosciutto
  • 12 thin slices provolone piccante (see note)
  • Basil, to serve
  •  
  • Peperonata
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 red capsicum, cored and thinly sliced
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp red wine
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
01   For peperonata, heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic and sauté until translucent (4-5 minutes). Add capsicum and thyme and sauté until capsicum starts to soften (4-5 minutes). Add vinegar, wine and sugar, season to taste, and simmer until liquid is almost completely absorbed (4-5 minutes). Cool to room temperature. Peperonata will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for a week.
02   To serve, drizzle cut side of rolls with oil, layer with prosciutto and provolone, top with peperonata, scatter with basil and season generously.
NoteProvolone piccante is from select delicatessens.
