Notes

Make It Your Own: Don’t have a jar of red peppers lying around? Don’t fret, because this dish makes it easy to swap in flavorful ingredients for ones that you’re missing. Simply sautéing a few extra cloves of minced garlic or hitting the dish with a pinch of red pepper flakes can add heat and flavor to your dish and make it even more homemade.

Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
