Treat yourself to an elegant Mediterranean lunch-for-one with our Tuscan-inspired sandwich. It can easily be doubled or quadrupled if you are having some people over, too. The sauce comes together in minutes and is made with olive oil, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and dried rosemary. It nicely complements the grilled pork loin and eggplant. The sandwich is then built by stuffing the whole wheat pitas with the cooked pork and eggplant as well as black olives, roasted red peppers, and romaine lettuce. It's an explosion of flavor and texture in every bite and will soon become a part of your go-to recipe rotation.
