Consider the consistency of melted cheese and imagine your gut trying to break it down - not an easy task. Several modern studies point to the many health risks of regular cheese consumption, yet it is as ubiquitous in our cooking as salt and pepper. So, imagine my happiness when I discovered this recipe!
