8 cloves garlic (about 1/2 a head), or to taste, minced
1 1/4 c. high quality, extra-virgin olive oil
2-3 pinches salt
1/2 c. finely grated Parmesan
2 pinches red chili flakes (optional)
2 tsp. chopped, fresh, basil
Whisk all ingredients together, except basil. Let the mixture sit on the counter for a few hours in a covered container to allow the flavors to meld.
Right before serving, add the chopped basil.
Serve the Sicilian Butter in a shallow dish with Crusty bread.
Note: When I am making this for my family, I typically cut it in half.
