Provoleta has absolutely nothing to do with the holidays. It's just delicious. Oh wait! It's red, and green and white! It can also replace your favorite but "cheesy" holiday movie. Ok, I'm done.
I can justify anything. Really. It's a talent of mine.
I love this dish because it's so communal. You throw it down in between a crowd and people just dive in and help themselves. I mean, what else are you supposed to do with bubbling creamy cheese.
...besides get a fork and shove some in your mouth?
This is embarrassingly easy....here we go ya'll...
1/2 inch Slice of Good Provolone (deli counter can do this for you)
1/4 Tsp of Dried Italian Seasoning
1/4 Cup of Chopped Roasted Red peppers
If you want to do it the real way, rub the provolone with olive oil and grill it on each side until you begin to see grill marks. If you want to do it the lazy way (insert Jaisa here) just throw it in a small casserole dish (so the provolone just fits inside) and then top with a drizzle of olive oil, dried herbs, and roasted red peps. Bake in a 425 degree oven until the cheese begins to get hot and bubbly, which is about 8-10 minutes. Serve as is or with a crusty loaf of bread.
