When it comes to lunch, the mighty sandwich tends to take the front row spot in my line of options. I love a hearty sub filled with all sorts of deliciousness but one of my favorites is definitely prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and roasted red peppers. There’s just something about that thin, salty prosciutto with the creamy fresh mozzarella and the sweet roasted red peppers. Put it all on a crusty roll and it’s lunch perfection.

But for some reason, I have a thing about sandwiches and dinner. For some reason, sandwiches just don’t feel like dinner fare to me. It’s completely insane and based on absolutely nothing, but I just can’t get past it. So I’ve dinner-ified my favorite sandwich and made it into the most amazing stromboli ever!

I’m not kidding, this roasted red pepper prosciutto stromboli is just exploding with flavor. I set out to take a prosciutto, mozzarella and red pepper sandwich and stuff it inside a stromboli, but then I wanted more cheese. Provolone is one of my all-time favorites, so it was settled. Then I thought about broccoli rabe. It would be the perfect veggie to throw into the mix. Then I sent my husband to the store and what came home? Broccoli. NOT broccoli rabe. So then the question became, to broccoli or not to broccoli? I went for it and I’m pleased to report, it totally works!

Sharp provolone and creamy mozzarella meld with the savory prosciutto, the smoky sweet flavor of roasted red peppers and tender garlicky broccoli - they all balance this stromboli into the perfect bite.

The only problem is that once you take that first bite, you won’t want to stop. I had to physically take the second half of this stromboli out of my house and give it to a neighbor to prevent the inevitable complete consumption that was coming. Did I mention that consumption was going to be done solely by me? I couldn’t help it! This stromboli recipe is completely irresistible and I know you’ll agree.
