  • Pepper

  • 4 large ciabatta rolls

  • 2 cups shredded mild provolone cheese

Position a rack in the center of the oven and pre-heat the broiler. In a bowl, combine the tuna, artichoke hearts, spinach, lemon juice, onion, celery, EVOO, parsley, capers and garlic; season with pepper. Split the ciabatta rolls and arrange on a baking sheet.
