Recipe Note

Just made this for myself and it was so amazing that I had to share my recipe! Use fresh smoked mozzarella and not the American version of that stiff mozzarella. Can be found in gourmet and specialty shops. I also add Provolone, but havarti, Swiss or yogurt cheese can also be used. You can make just one sandwich or use a long sourdough or French roll for a semi-large gathering.
