Dish of the Day: Rusted Rooster's Ciabatta Believe It

by Elizabeth Rose

The new Saint Streets restaurant's sandwich is an homage to the Italian countryside. Rusted Rooster's Ciabatta Believe It sandwich starts with healthy hunks of fresh mozzarella, topped with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and, if you ask for it, prosciutto. If the cured meat doesn't appeal to you, then try it with a grilled chicken breast instead.

The ciabatta is the vehicle for these fresh ingredients, but only after it's coated with homemade pesto. The result is a sandwich with distinct flavors that all meld together perfectly.

Check out Rusted Rooster for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch is served from 10:30 a.m. until close. Rusted Rooster is located at 105 St. Landry St.
