Simple Lunch

{One of my favorite cookbooks, Barefoot Contessa at Home}

As much fun as it is to get a sandwich from from a favorite local bakery, sometimes there is nothing better than putting one together yourself.  Last month I recreated an Ina Garten recipe, and once the weather starts warming up around here, this sandwich would be a great addition to a picnic basket.

Notes:  I roasted the peppers over the gas burner, but if you don't have one, you can cook them whole on a sheet pan in the oven for 35 minutes until they are charred.  The recipe says to use either plain or garlic and herb goat cheese- I highly recommend using garlic and herb which just adds more flavor all around.  I used my Modena balsamic vinegar for the sauce mixture which took it up a notch.  I also omitted the capers as I am not a fan, but feel free to include them as the recipe states.
