Loaded Italian Sub

How to make a Loaded Italian Sub.


  • 1 large italian sub roll
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ pound provolone cheese
  • ¼ pound capicola
  • ¼ pound spicy capicola
  • ¼ Genoa salami
  • ¼ pound prosciutto
  • 1 large tomato, sliced thick
  • ¼ small onion, sliced thin
  • 2 handfuls of arugula
  • 4 slices fire-roasted peppers
  • 4 fresh basil leaves
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. First make your dressing for the sub.
  2. Pour the extra virgin olive oil and vinegar of your choice into a small bowl.
  3. Add the dried oregano and stir to combine.
  4. Slice the sub roll open lengthwise using a serrated bread knife.
  5. Using a basting brush, apply the olive oil/vinegar/oregano dressing to the inside top and bottom of the sub.
  6. Begin to layer your meats.
  7. You can try any order you like, but we start with spicy capicola, then salami, then regular capicola, and finally, prosciutto.
  8. Next, add the onion slices.
  9. On top of the onions, add fire roasted peppers.
  10. Lay the sharp provolone atop the onion and roasted pepper layer.
  11. And on top of the cheese goes the tomato slices.
  12. Brush the tomatoes with a little bit of the dressing from earlier.
  13. Next place the two handfuls of arugula onto your delicious pile of meat, cheese, and veggies.
  14. Add your fresh basil leaves, drizzle more dressing, and add some freshly ground black pepper.
  15. Cut, serve and enjoy!
