I love devouring huge sandwiches for a meal. Unfortunately, the ones you get at restaurants are typically loaded with fat and have little nutrition. I'm usually very suspicious of "healthy recipes", feeling that the healthier they are, the less taste they have.

That is not true with this! Bursting at the seams with lightly sautéed fresh vegetables, topped with a thin slice of cured Italian ham and lowfat cheese, sitting pretty between a whole wheat bun. I honestly was completely satisfied and feeling light and good after eating this. Enjoy!

Total Time: Less than 30 minutes.

Yield: 7 large sandwiches


  • 1 bell pepper, any color (I used green)
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 small yellow squash
  • 2 cups halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup sliced green beans
  • 2 cups sliced asparagus
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp freshly ground sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried cilantro
  • 7 slices prosciutto
  • 7 slices lowfat mozzarella
  • 7 whole wheat sandwich buns

You can halve this recipe, or simply refrigerate the remaining vegetables and use them for multiple sandwiches during the week.



  1. Begin by washing your vegetables. Julienne your green pepper, zucchini and yellow squash, and slice the remaining vegetables. Look at all that wonderful nutrition you are about to put into your body!
  2. Heat your large pan and put only 1/4 cup grapeseed oil in the bottom. Don't worry, this really will be enough. :)
  3. Add your veggies and spices.
  4. Stir well and continuously for only 8 minutes. Your veggies will still be a bit crisp.
  5. Place a generous portion on a whole wheat sandwich roll, top with prosciutto and cheese and enjoy!

This recipe can be used as a side dish or as the main dish. It's very good. It is delicious made with prosciutto, but cooked chicken or turkey is great too, just chop 1/2 pound of either as an excellent substitute.


  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 large shallots, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp. tarragon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 lb. prosciutto, slivered
  • 1/2 lb. linguine
  • 1 1/2 lbs. fresh broccoli florets, cooked (about 4 cups)
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese


In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and saute the shallots until they have softened. Stir in the flour and cook over low heat for 3 minutes. Don't brown it.

Add the milk, stirring constantly over medium heat until the sauce is bubbling. Lower the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Add tarragon, salt and pepper. Stir until smooth. Stir the prosciutto into the sauce.

Cook the linguine according to package directions. When done, drain, and stir in 1 cup of the sauce.

Layer half of the linguine in an oblong 2 quart baking dish. Top with all of the broccoli, then the rest of the linguine. Smooth the top with a spatula, pressing down lightly. Pour the rest of the sauce over. Mix the breadcrumbs and cheese and sprinkle over the top.


Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, until browned and bubbly. To serve, cut in squares, like lasagna.
