Turkey Pesto Ciabatta Sandwich

I love this sandwich.  We've had it for dinner three times since I found this recipe and I could probably just eat it everyday and be happy. So. Good.

Turkey Pesto Ciabatta Sandwich
adapted from Jamie Cooks it Up

5 square ciabatta rolls ( I really love the Wal-Mart bakery ones)
1/2 cup mayo
1/3 cup pesto
1 lb sliced deli turkey (get the good stuff)
1 lrg tomato
1/2 red onion
fresh spinach leaves
5 slices provolone cheese

Slice ciabatta's in half and lay them out on a large cookie sheet.  Mix mayo and pesto together in a dish and spread over each half bread.  Layer tomato, onion and spinach on one half and top with one slice cheese.  Layer turkey on other half.  Bake on center rack of oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.  Turn broiler on and broil for ~2 minutes until cheese is slightly golden and bubbly.  remove from oven and let cool for a couple minutes then put then join the meat half to the veggie half and enjoy.  We serve these with fruit, fresh veggies or sweet potato fries.  Seriously delightful.
