I got this recipe from the CopyKat website. It purports to be from The Olive Garden restaurant. I cannot attest to that fact, but I can attest to it being a deliciously creamy/cheesy/lemony-tart dish. I did change the cooking procedure a bit and added just a little bit of additional seasonings. You can serve it over toasted garlic bread slices or pasta. The cheese does need to be finely grated so I used the smallest hole on my box grater to grate the Asiago and I ran the grated Mozzarella through my food processor. A co-worker even suggested serving it over baked or broiled fish.
