Good stuff! I wasn't quite sure how this was supposed to turn out. I used peppered Parmesan, had no fresh basil so used dried, came out as a kind of grainy spread. It's unusual, but I can see many uses for this. A keeper. K-Jon, thanks for posting . . . Janet
What a taste treat! It really wakes up the taste buds. I lightly toasted thin slices of baggette and enjoyed this on top. I have also mixed it with diced tomato and placed on bread. Both ways have been good. I did top off some pasta and sauce with a little sprinkle on top, yumm. It is quite crumbly but the little pieces that fall off the bread are so good on the end of your finger. Waste not want not. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC 2010.
K-Jon this is absolutely delish! I only made one change, and that was minor. I have an ulcer, so I had to back off the red pepper flakes. That's fine, because they can be sprinkled on right at the table. My grocery store has been having great big, beefsteak tomatoes, and I have made a meal out of slices of tomato, a healthy glop of Glop! Thanks K-Jon for a great recipe that has many uses. For the member who asked about another cheese to replace the parmesan, I'd suggest Romano. I use it in many dishes,as it's so much cheaper than Parmesan, and no one has ever questioned it.
