My familes Favorite Sandwich

2 unsliced loaves (1 pound each) Italian bread
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil 3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
1/2 pound deli roast beef
12 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese (1 ounce each)
16 fresh basil leaves
3 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/4 pound thinly sliced salami
1 jar (6-1/2 ounces) marinated artichoke hearts, drained and sliced
1 package (10 ounces) ready-to-serve salad greens
8 ounces thinly sliced deli chicken
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Cut loaves in half horizontally; hollow out tops and bottoms, leaving 1/2-in. shells (discard removed bread or save for another use).
Combine oil and garlic; brush inside bread shells. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Layer bottom of each loaf with a fourth of the roast beef, mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, salami, artichokes, salad greens, chicken and onion. Repeat layers. Season with salt, pepper and remaining Italian seasoning.
Drizzle with remaining oil mixture if desired. Replace bread tops; wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before slicing. Yield: 2 loaves (12 servings each)."
