Expert Tips

If you can’t find ciabatta rolls, you can substitute focaccia or 8 slices of country bread.

This sandwich is delicious made with ham or roast beef, too.

Make sure you use the marinated artichoke hearts. Frozen artichoke hearts are not marinated and do not have the same amount of flavor.
