Italian Cheese Spread

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Chef Robby

An easy and inexpensive appetizer that will be a hit at any occasion. Be sure to make this several hours or a day in advance to give the flavor from the ingredients time to meld. Can be used as a spread, or made into cheese balls.

We really liked this a lot. Will definitely be making again. Of course I added a little extra garlic.
