Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).

  • Place marinara sauce in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; cook until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and keep warm until sandwiches are ready.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir onion, red bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, and goat horn pepper in the hot oil until onion softens and begins to turn golden, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove onion mixture to a plate and set aside.

  • Place salami and pepperoni in the hot skillet and cook until crisp, about 2 minutes per side.

  • Spread each hoagie bun with 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese and 1 tablespoon garlic spread. Top each roll with 4 slices salami and 4 slices pepperoni. Sprinkle with onion mixture and mozzarella cheese.

  • Place sandwiches onto a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bread is toasted, about 5 minutes. Spoon 1/2 cup warm marinara sauce over each sandwich.

MY OH MY!!!!! (as the late great Dave Niehaus would say) This is amazing! I followed this recipe but had to skip some of the hot peppers due to a lack of tolerance for "hot stuff". Two of the most notable components were the Mascarpone and the Garlic Basil Spread. They take this sandwich from very good to GREAT! Two other must have components.....a fork and knife. This thing is messy good and you'll want to get every bite. This puppy is headed for my super bowl menu. Thanks so much for sharing!!! Read More

This sandwich has great flavor and is VERY filling. I didn't use hot chilies and don't know what mascarpone cheese is so I didn't use it. I used provolone cheese and it turned out nicely. We ended up eating with a knife and fork - I really piled the ingredients high. I used a marinara sauce recipe from this site and the flavors and textures blended well. Make sure your roll is big enough to take all the ingredients. I used French bread and ended up having to wait to get the sandwiches out of the oven to add the marinara to it because the bread wasn't thick enough. One negative is that it takes a little work to make them. It's worth the effort. Thanks for sharing. Read More

We gave up pretty early and used knives and forks on these sandwiches. They're just too messy and full to pick up and eat. But however you gotta do it make and eat these because they are SPECTACULAR. The mascarpone and the garlic spread MAKE this sandwich. You could play around with the meats and cheeses but don't mess with the spreads. Read More

Killer sandwich for football playoffs today. Followed recipe except that I used basil garlic pesto that I had in the fridge rather than the garlic spread. Very filling but everyone loved them:) Read More

These were a bit of work but worth it. I used ciabatta rolls cuz they were on sale. Excellent for lunch or make lots for a gathering. Read More
