Roasted Olives in Feta Cheese

1 cup green pimento stuffed olives
1 cup pitted black olives
3 tablespoons commercial Italian salad dressing
1/2 tsp coarse ground pepper
1/2 lb. Feta cheese, drained and crumbled (I buy it already crumbled)
3 (8 oz) pkgs. cream cheese. Not low fat.
1/2 tsp chopped garlic

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Drain olives and toss with Italian salad dressing.

Place olives in baking dish and roast olives for 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until slightly charred. Cool and chop.

In large bowl, mix and beat pepper, feta, cream cheese, garlic. Fold in olives.

Line round, flat dish or pan with plastic wrap and firmly press cheese mixture into dish. Smooth into a large cheese round. Fold ends of plastic wrap over all.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until firm.

Invert on plate, remove wrap and serve with crackers.

You can also cut into four wedges and wrap each and give as gifts.

Make 4 cups.
