About this recipe:I was eager to concoct a suitable meal for guests on my student budget by utilizing ingredients already in my apartment. With one vegetarian on our guest list, I aimed for veggie-friendly, economical yet still rich and satisfying. I served this with sun-dried tomato bread and not a morsel remained--very filling AND loaded with vitamins!
1 200g tub cream cheese, cubed (light can be used)
90g grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp chopped garlic or to taste

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
