This recipe sounds so good! I didn't know you could cook cheese like this w/o it melting all over the place!  (Recipe courtesy Michael Chiarello, 2007)


Marinated and Grilled Provolone

2 pieces provolone cheese (about 1 1/2-pounds total)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
5 to 6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon freshly minced parsley leaves
Grey salt and freshly ground black pepper

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill.

Rub the pieces of provolone all over with the olive oil and season
with the rest of the ingredients. Let marinate refrigerated for 1
hour. Grill the cheese on the hot grill over moderately-high heat for
about 2 minutes per side until grill marks appear and the cheese just
begins to soften.

Transfer the cheese to a metal plate or baking dish on top of the
grill. Cook until the cheese just barely starts to melt and begins to
brown on the bottom, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Serve hot with crusty bread or grilled bread slices.
