"Italian Butter" is a really cute name for this! I love dipping warm bread into this mixture and it comes very close to the stuff they serve at the famous Italian chain restaurant - Carrabba's. ...

Yummy and very simple to prepare. Served with warm French bread as the recipe suggests. I didn't bother grinding up anything.
