Notes

  • You can substitute the cheese to another kind if you prefer.
  • If you don't have a food processor, using a blender or hand held blender will work as well.
  • If your oven does not have a grill option, then bake it at 220°C / 425°F.
  • This dish pairs really well with a toastie for a meal.
