Baked Italian Sandwich



I got the inspiration for this one from Gale's Antipasto Squares! I really want to try that one day, but was thinking about my hubby's favorite Italian sandwich, so this is what came out of that! Lol! Hope someone else likes it too!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What an easy and fantastic dish to prepare! All the flavors of the meats shine in this dish. The marinara dipping sauce is a nice touch. This will great at your next tailgate or for an easy weeknight meal.
