Yield: 4 servings
Cut the loaf in half horizontally; remove center of bread on both halves leaving a 1-inch thick shell.
Place a colander over a bowl. To the colander add onion, red peppers, artichoke hearts and tomatoes. Gently apply pressure to the vegetables to remove excess juice. Continue to let vegetables drain until ready to assemble the sandwich.
Combine garlic, cream cheese, goat cheese, basil, salt and pepper until smooth. Spread over cut halves of the bread. Spoon vegetable mixture into the hollows and sandwich the two halves together.
Slice into 4 portions and serve.
To roast fresh red peppers:
Place whole peppers on a baking sheet or shallow pan and broil in oven until skin blisters. Turn the peppers until charred on all sides, about 15 minutes.
Transfer peppers to a bowl, cover with plastic and set aside to cool. When peppers are cool enough to handle, peel the skins and remove stems and seeds.
