How to Prepare:
Drain olives and toss with Italian salad dressing. Place olives in baking dish and roast for 25 minutes at 350 (med. hot oven) 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 (I used a round Tupperware container) andfirmly press cheese mixture into the 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 wasa crackers or pepperoni chips.
