1 can (14 ounces) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and chopped
1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon canola oil
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
8 slices Italian bread (1/2 inch thick)
8 spinach leaves
1/4 cup butter, softened
In a large skillet, saute the artichokes, pepper and onion in oil until tender; stir in cheese. Remove from the heat.
In a food processor, combine mayonnaise and tomatoes; cover and process until finely chopped.
Spread four bread slices with half of the mayonnaise mixture; layer with a spinach leaf, artichoke mixture and remaining spinach. Spread remaining bread with mayonnaise mixture; place on top. Butter outsides of sandwiches.
On a griddle, toast sandwiches for 2-3 minutes on each side or until bread is lightly browned.
