Makes 4 Panini


8 oz tuna packed in oil

1 tablespoon capers, drained

1 tablespoon chopped flat Italian parsley

Juice of 1 lemon

Pinch of red pepper flakes

8 pitted and chopped cured black olives

Mix the above ingredients and refrigerate until ready to assemble panini.

4 oz bel paese cheese

12 slices oven roasted tomato

2 cups baby arugula

Filippo Berio Extra Virgin olive oil

Preheat your favorite Panini maker.

Place 1 slice of cheese on each of four slices of bread or on half of each roll.  Evenly distribute the tuna mixture on top of the cheese. 

Put 3 slices of roasted tomato over the tuna and then top with the arugula. 

Drizzle each sandwich with some of the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
