Directions

  1. Peel away the dry outer leaves of skin from garlic bulb. Leave skins of cloves intact. Use a knife to cut off the pointed top portion (about 1/4 inch), leaving the bulb intact but exposing the individual cloves. Place garlic bulb, cut side up, in a small covered baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over garlic; cover and set aside.
  2. Halve the sweet peppers; remove stems, membranes, and seeds. Place peppers, cut side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake the peppers and the covered garlic in a 425 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pepper skins are bubbly and browned and garlic cloves feel soft when pressed. Set garlic aside to cool. Place peppers in a clean brown paper bag; close and let the peppers cool. Using a sharp paring knife, carefully remove the blackened skin from the peppers. Cut peppers into pieces.
  3. Remove garlic bulb from the oil; reserve oil. Press the garlic paste from individual cloves or use the tip of a knife to remove the soft garlic paste. In a food processor bowl or blender container combine the roasted pepper pieces, garlic paste, reserved oil, cheese, pepper, and salt. Cover and process or blend using several on-off turns until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Stir in the thyme.
