    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    Despite its name, if you're a fan of garlic and Gorgonzola cheese, you'll love this! It's always been well received whenever I've made it.This is from a May 1981 Bon Appetit magazine and is a recipe from "An Antipasto Supreme" menu. The Piedmontese are very fond of cheese. This recipe, with its large head of garlic, is guaranteed to keep away the Angel of Death. Probably vampires too! :)
