"Ach - who'd want to mix everything together? It'd look and taste a sorry mess! Made as directed, it looks and tastes spectacular, and is easy easy easy. It's not for wimpy palates though: the flav..." See moreours are robust! I made 1 1/2 times the amount of cheese mixture and used a little more of the tomato to yield two bowls. A note to people who are doubtful about the sundried tomatoe: even though ordinary tomato paste is indeed cheaper, the flavour can in no way compared to sundried tomato paste or pate. Dry-packed (ie. in a packet, not in a jar in oil) dried tomatoes are CHEAP, and you're far better off using those. Simply place them in a bowl, cover with boiling water, allow to soak until soft and swollen, then drain and wizz in the food processor with good olive oil, oregano, garlic, and salt and pepper, and a few olives and/or capers if you like. Extremely delicious, inexpensive, and better than anything you could buy - particularly ordinary tomato paste!"
