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


  1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve hot with crusty bread or grilled bread slices.
