In a food processor or blender combine the artichoke hearts, garlic and olive oil. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Slice the rolls in half lengthwise and pull out most of the soft bread from the top and bottom. Spread the artichoke paste onto each side of each roll. Place layers of red capsicums, rocket, salami, provolone cheese, pepperoncini, olives and onion into the rolls. Press sandwiches together and wrap tightly in aluminium foil.
Place sandwiches in the refrigerator with something heavy on top. (It helps to place a plate on top then place tins or any weighted containers on top). Refrigerate for up to 3 hours. Unwrap, cut in half and enjoy.
Provolone is an Italian cheese that originated in Southern Italy, where it is still produced. It is a semi-hard cheese with taste varying from very sharp to sweet with a very mild taste. It can be substituted with a quality sandwich cheese of your choice.
Pepperoncini (or Peperoncini) are related to chilli and capsicum; they are primarily sold picked in delis and specialty shops.
