Extraordinary Stromboli

I made this recipe because when our family goes out to eat at our favorite little Italian restaurant this is what my husband and the boys order. Every time, without fail. So I figured I could make it and (probably) make it better!

The Stromboli was okay. It was a little dry and what I failed to remember (and the recipe did not mention) was that the Stromboli my family orders comes with a side of Marinara sauce (DUH) so next time I make this (along with my tweaks) I will be serving it with some Marinara on the side!
