Welcome to another edition of Tasty Tuesdays! Check out
New Mommy Rant for another Tasty recipe!

The following recipe is a copycat recipe from Olive Garden. It tastes exactly the same! You should try it out; it's great for a party - so quick & easy!

1 cup sour cream (Do not substitute light or fat free)
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups shredded smoked mozzarealla cheese
3 cups shredded provolone cheese
3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons grated romano cheese
8 teaspoons fresh diced tomato
chopped fresh parsley


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Arrange sliced Italian bread flat on a baking sheet and cover with foil. Set aside until ready to use.
3.Combine sour cream, thyme, red pepper, cayenne pepper and four cheeses in a large bowl and blend thoroughly.
4. Spray an 8x10-inch casserole dish with pan spray, then use a spatula to transfer the mixture.
5. Place casserole dish on center rack in oven.
6. After five minutes, place baking sheet with bread, still covered, on top rack in oven. Bake for an additional five minutes. Remove bread and fonduta from oven.

I love the Olive Garden. I'll have to try this out, although I'm quite sure mine will not be the same.
