Does anyone have a recipe for Muffaletta pasta? I know it contains items that are in a muffaletta sandwich, but it is baked in a casserole dish.

I found a recipe at this website
Muffaletta Pasta Bake
This is a dish I adapted from the famous sandwich from New Orleans. I simply replaced Muffalatta bread with pasta.
1 lb. penne pasta
1 lb. grated mozzarella cheese
1 lb. smoked ham (black forest is best) cut thick
1/2 lb. genoa salami cut thick
1/2 - 1 cup (depending on your preference) olive salad mix (http://www.cajungrocer.com/boscoli-italian-olive-salad-mix-p-506.html to order)
toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Cook pasta according to package directions. Cool. Mix in cheese, ham and salami cut in inch squares, olive salad mix, and half of cheese. Put in a casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese and sesame seeds. Bake until cheese is melted and center is hot.
