Cheesy Pancetta and Garlic Bread with Arugula

Here is a quick and easy dish that you can make with the arugula you may have planted in your garden.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 loaf of Ciabatta bread
  • 8 thin slices of pancetta
  • olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • Buffalo mozzarella cheese
  • 1 or 2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • Oregano
  • Baby arugula

DIRECTIONS

  1. Slice the bread down the middle the long way and place the two halves on a baking sheet, cut side up.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the cut side of each half
  3. Spread half of the garlic over one slice of the bread and the other half on the other slice.
  4. Lay the pancetta slices over the cut side of each half of bread
  5. Place the bread under the broiler until the pancetta starts to get crispy.
  6. Remove from the oven and place slices of the mozzarella cheese over the top of the pancetta and sprinkle the oregano over top of the cheese.
  7. Place the bread back under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
  8. Immediately after removing from the oven, top each piece of bread with tomato slices and arugula. The heat from the bread will lightly steam the tomatoes and arugula.
