4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary, or 1 tsp. fresh, finely chopped
zest of 1/2 lemon
2 tsp. lemon juice
small garlic clove mashed with a pinch of salt
Mix the ingredients together with a fork for a nice forearm workout, or place them into a food processor and pulse until it is nice and creamy. Serve this spread with crostini, crudites, dry cured deli meats and olives for a fabulous antipasto platter. Not only is this spread good served as part of an antipasto platter, but it can be mixed with hot pasta, and some of the pasta water for a light cheesy sauce, or you can use it as a base for pizza instead of tomato sauce. You can even make a grilled cheese sandwich, or spread it into an omelet, just to name of a few the many of this spread's mouth watering possibilities. Enjoy!
