Prosciutto, Arugula, and Tomato Sandwich
Here in the States we have the good old BLT sandwich, but in Italy, they serve a PAT instead — prosciutto, arugula, and tomato. This is just as easy to make, and if you're a fan of prosciutto (as I am), this sandwich is a real winner.
- 1 hot pepper in vinegar, sliced
- 4 thin slices prosciutto di Parma, cookedcrisp like bacon
- 2 slices ciabatta, toasted
- 1 Cup arugula
- 2 slices tomato
- 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
In a blender, combine the hot pepper and mayonnaise and blend. Layer the crispy prosciutto di Parma on a slice of ciabatta. In a small bowl, toss the arugula with 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise. Add the arugula on top of the prosciutto and layer on the tomato. Coat the other slice with the remaining mayonnaise, place on top, and press down to integrate the ingredients and warm the bread. Cut in half and serve.
