Rosemary Mascarpone Spread

Rosemary Mascarpone SpreadP I N_______I M A G E

This recipe is inspired by a butter spread that I had last week at Local Bistro. A cozy Italian restaurant right in our neighborhood. I had a tasty seafood salad that included crab, shrimp, fried calamari (tentacles and all! no, I did not eat those ;)), orange vinaigrette, topped with a little bit of caviar. Mr. Delish had their pappardelle bolognese, so delicious! While we waited for our meals to arrive, we were served a whipped butter spread along with fresh baked bread. It was so good I was trying very hard to guess all of the ingredients in the spread.

I told our waitress how good the spread was and fortunately she volunteered to tell me all of the ingredients that made this recipe so wonderful. She said mascarpone! I guessed all of the others but not mascarpone! Who would’ve thunk? As a side note, I’m a little shy in asking the staff at restaurants for the recipes from dishes I truly enjoyed. Most of the time I leave the place wishing I had the guts to ask just in case they would kindly tell me all of the ingredients. I’m getting better though and have asked a few times but no recipes where given :(.

Lucky me, I didn’t even have to ask this time!

I recreated the recipe the next day to bring to a baby shower held in my office for a co-worker. It was a hit! I decided to bring some roasted bell peppers and kalamata olives as toppings in case people wanted to turn them into bruschettas. However, the spread is perfect served with bread only.  Simple but delicious.
