Celebrate National Sandwich Month!

Sandwich lovers rejoice, there’s finally a month for you! August is National Sandwich Month, or National Panini Month if you prefer to keep it Italian. What better way to celebrate the occasion than to head to savor a variety of delicious sandwiches? Visit Basta Pasta to enjoy classic sandwiches and paninis like the Ribeye Philly Cheesesteak and the Caprese! In the meantime, make one of the following traditional recipes at home!

Panino al Prosciutto 

Some of the best sandwiches require the simplest ingredients, and the prosciutto panini is no exception. All you need is one ridged roll and a few pieces of freshly sliced prosciutto. Pile the prosciutto on the bottom half of the bread, top with the other half, and enjoy! 


The Puccia is made with pizza dough and stuffed with a variety of meats and cheeses. You can keep your Puccia simple or fill it with several ingredients like sliced olives, capers, and soppressata. If you enjoy a gluten-free diet and you’re making a Puccia at home, simply use gluten-free flour to make the dough! 

Pane e Panelle 

Take a break from the meat and enjoy this Sicilian classic! The Pane e Panelle is a sesame roll stuffed with fried chickpea fritters. It’s the perfect sandwich to enjoy as an afternoon snack or a late-night bite! The chickpea fritters can also be enjoyed alone, but bread makes everything better! 

Panino con Mortadella 

American bologna has met its match. Mortadella is made with cured pork and stuffed with black pepper and pistachios. Enjoy mortadella on a slice of bread, or top a few slices with roasted peppers and a hard cheese! 

Porchetta di Ariccia 

Lastly but certainly not least is the Porchetta di Ariccia! This fatty, boneless pork roast is the perfect sandwich companion. Simply cut a roll in half, fill it generously with Porchetta, and top with fresh arugula. Enjoy!
