Serves Serves 1... I mean 4.     adjust servings


  • 1/2 cup good quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
  • 2 tablespoons oregano (or Italian seasoning)
  • 1/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, or to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • crusty bread, for dipping


  1. Pour the olive oil into a small shallow pan. Set over medium-low heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic. Leave the oil and garlic over the heat just until it has warmed, (you are not cooking it, just warming) then pour the oil onto a deep plate or wide, shallow bowl.
  3. Immediately sprinkle with oregano, parmesan, balsamic vinegar, and black pepper.
  4. Serve with hot crusty bread! Prepare to abandon your dinner.
