Mediterranean Muffaletta


Traditional Muffaletta is a traditional Italian round loaf or submarine style sandwich loaded with layers of delicious sliced meats and cheeses, lettuce tomatoes and olive tapenade or pesto. This version layers veggies both raw and roasted with sprinkles of feta cheeses to give a very satifying and magnficent Muffaletta!

Be generous with all of the ingredients...this is just a guideline...use your imagination!

I think a little crumbled bacon or cooked proscuitto would be fantastic too:)
