Recipe of the Month: Provolone Dream

March 18, 2011

There always seems to be plenty of reasons to celebrate here at the PQ and it usually involves food.  Over the years we have enjoyed each others cooking (except Eli’s…LOL) and look forward to having some of our favorites dishes.  In the next few months, we will be sharing some of our favorite recipes from our staff and students. 

This month we are sharing a recipe of April’s that everyone loves.  Phyllis loves it so much, she will eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  April whipped us up a loaf last night so that we could include a picture in this blog post.   the Friday Open Sew students were more than willing to indulge once the photo shoot was complete! It’s the perfect dish to bring to a family gathering , party or celebration with friends!


Provolone Dream

  • 1 8oz bar of Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 lb of sliced Provolone Cheese
  • 3/4 cup of Pesto Sauce
  • 1 jar of Sun-Dried Tomatoes (drained)

In a food processor, cream together the Cream Cheese, Garlic, and Black Pepper.  Set mixture a side.

In the food processor, chop the drained Sun-Dried Tomatoes.  Set a side.

Line a large loaf pan with clear plastic wrap, leaving extra hanging out of pan on all four sides.  Line pan with Provolone Cheese, overlapping in areas so that no holes show through.  Like a lasagna, layer the three different ingredients (Garlic Cream Cheese, Pesto, and Tomatoes).  Separate each layer with Provolone Cheese.  Continue process until ingredients are gone, usually about three layers.  Finish with a layer of Provolone Cheese.  Tightly wrap the loaf with the clear plastic wrap.  Leave in loaf pan and refrigerate for 3 -4 hours or overnight.  Remove from pan onto serving dish and serve with sourdough baguette slices or water crackers.
