In a skillet, heat Olive oil. Throw in your garlic and stir a little bit until it looks a bit like it has crisped.
Throw in your chopped tomatoes. Let saute and wait til garlic becomes golden brown.
Add in the Gouda Cheese and stir it in to melt.
Add your chopped herbs. Stirring continuously. Then, add in your chili flakes.
Serve on the side with sliced and toasted country bread. In a sandwich with your favorite ham, salami or roast beef cuts. May also be used as pasta sauce! Just add in more olive oil and voila. Your version of cheesy herbed Aglio Olio!
