Really good, different type of panini. I used Albacore in olive oil, and only a 6 oz jar of marinated artichokes....I thought that was plenty. Also omitted the tomato, because mine was bad. Excellent. Made on our panini press with Ciabatta rolls. Will be made again. Thanks for posting!

Oh so good! I lightened it up by using tuna packed in water, light mayo, and water packed chokes. It was SO good!!! Thanks for posting this great recipe.

This is a fantastic panini! I used whole wheat pita bread instead of ciabatta... it turned out very nice.

This was DELICIOUS! My husband says the odds were stacked against me with this one since he doesn't like kalamata olives, artichokes, or tomatoes, and he didn't realize until afterwards that I actually used vegan mayo as well which he refuses to try lol, but he said "you could make this one again!" lol That is a huge compliment coming from him! I thought the flavors of this were wonderful, though my garlic cloves were pretty large so it was a tad spicy from the garlic but we like a lot of it normally anyway so no problems there. I did add a bit more lemon juice than called for. The color of the spread was beautiful as well. I love that there is no need for dairy in this recipe since we are on a restrictive diet right now due to our son's allergies. Giada really knows her stuff!

Yum!! I used Starkist tuna in olive oil and drained well. Also ommited the tomato and additional olive oil and used a 6 oz. jar of marinated artichokes instead. Also cut down a tad on the olives. The boyfriend loved this as well...will make again! Thanx.

Wonderful! This was very tasty and so easy to make. I used fresh tuna steaks which I seasond with Italian seasoning and EVOO and broiled for 3 minutes pers side. I cut them into chunks and followed the rest of the recipe except I did not use tomato since they looked awful. On DH'd homemade ciabatta this was awsome, though he thought it would be better had I grilled the sandwiches in a panini press and also suggested some provalone or mozzarella cheese; sort of an Italian tuna melt. Next time. Thanks for the great recipe, we really enjoyed this.

Very good! We used up some leftover tuna steaks we had grilled out the night before and instead of using the entire loaf of ciabatta bread at once, made individual sandwiches by slicing the loaf into sandwich size slices (rather thin) and then, we place the sandwiches on our cast iron flat grill and pressed them with a bacon press while they were grilling, yummy!!!
