MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2010

"Made this for Italian day at work, served with spaghetti sauce for dipping. It was very good. I didn't chop the ham, just layered it on the bread that I had spread with the cream cheese/parmesan cheese/garlic powder mixture. Delicious; left you wanting more. Would be great for lunch cut into larger portions. Very quick and easy to make. Plan on making it again for company this weekend."
