Pesto and focaccia bread make this pretty sandwich deliciously different from most deli sandwiches. This is great to serve at football parties and other group gatherings. —Mary Humeniuk-Smith, Perry Hall, Maryland

"A favorite among the men I've made it for. I buy the focaccia at Panera and it is just an easy satisfying sandwich with a unique presentation. Ingredients can easily be interchanged for others to preference or availability."

"I've made this recipe many times. It bakes longer than the recipe calls for though. I buy the focaccia bread from Panera. There's is the best."

"I, too, made some adjustments to this recipe. I used a cheese bread b/c Walmart was out of focaccia. We prefer provolone cheese and hard salami to American cheese and pastrami. I forgot to add the Italian seasoning but I didn't miss it. This is a great, simple sandwich that can be changed to suit any tastes. A big hit!"

"I didn't have all/couldn't find all the ingredients so I ended up making adjustments such as instead of focaccia bread, I got some hamburger sourdough bread from the bakery, used salami instead of pastrami and used sun dried tomato pesto. If you are looking for a good, flavorful sandwich this is it!! I can only imagine how good it would be on the focaccia bread!!! Definitely a KEEPER!!!!"
