Super Cheesy and Delicious Parmesan Dip

This weekend I made Michael Chiarello's Salsa di Parmigiano and it was delicious! Everything you could want in a dip- super cheesy- and very garlicy... it was wonderful. Plus it's easy and quick to make... my favorite. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb. Parmesan
  • 1/2 lb. Asiago
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 cup and a half of extra virgin olive oil (I recommend maybe just using a tad bit less)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Remove any rinds from the cheese and chop the cheeses into rough 1 inch chunks. (I did this with the Asiago but the Parmesan I purchased shredded... because it was cheaper). Place the cheese in a food processor...

Add the oregano and red pepper flakes

Then add the garlic and pepper. Pulse until reduced to a fine pea size gravel.

Stir in the green onion and olive oil (Since I was out of green onion (may be the 1st time my fridge has ever not had green onion!- I skipped this ingredient and just added in the olive oil). Pulse again.

Cover and let stand at room temperature for 4 hours. And eat up! We served ours with bread points, but you can also use crackers (what we tested the recipe with). This mixture is also great over pasta, chicken, etc...
