"Modified from a recipe found on the web in 2007. The longer this is in the fridge the better the flavor. We have kept it for up to 5 months. Either poke holes in the cheese with a fork or cut into chunks. We use the whole cheese when we make this. Cook time is marinading time."

I made this using small bocconcini balls and followed a past reviewers suggestion to use fresh garlic, adding 2 crushed cloves. I also added a bit of salt because the bocconcini is unsalted. I waited the full 14 days to sample these and YUM!!! This will be a regular item found in our refrigerator from now on. Thx for sharing this here.

As much as you want to eat the cheese before the 7 days, DON`T do it. This needs at least 7 days marinating time. I`m giving this a big 5 stars for the flavor, my next batch I will use fresh garlic slices instead of powder. I love this recipe and thanks for sharing it here

I made this almost a week ago and tried it today. The flavours are permeating the cheese beautifully. Having a hard time keeping DH from eating it all. I doubled the marinade so that it would cover all the cheese. This will be exceptional with pasta, salads or an antipasto plate. Will be making again for the summer rush of visitors. Thank you for sharing!
