Mmmmmm provoleta.  How do I love thee?  Let me count the pounds.

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 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 
Olive Oil

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.

Stay hungry!


  1. Holy hell that looks amazing. My Italian MIL is joining us for 3, pretty sure I will be making this at some point!

  2. Hi Jaisa! Hopped over from ETST and am a new follower now. This looks SUPER easy which is just what I need with a toddler running around. Love the blog!
