Preparation

Step 1

Place all ingredients except the oil and cheese in
a blender or food processor. Slowly, while blender or
processor is running, add the oil and process or blend
to a chunky paste. Do not overblend; you want this
to be chunky, not smooth. Add more oil if needed. Fold
in the cheese and store this up to a week in the
refrigerator, or for several months in the freezer, in
an airtight container.

Serving Suggestions:
Use as a spread on tomato halves or slices, and broil.
Mix with oil and vinegar for an instant and tasty salad dressing.
Mix with bread crumbs to use as a filling for chicken or stuff mushrooms.
Serve over pasta.
