Ingredients

Preparation

In a small bowl, combine the cheeses and set aside. Line another small bowl with plastic wrap (this bowl will serve as your mold for the torta). Arrange the 2 herb sprigs and red bell pepper facedown in the bottom of the bowl.

Press one third of the cheese mixture on top of the herbs and spread half of each of the remaining ingredients on top. Press another third of the cheese mixture on top of this, making sure it reaches the edges. Form your next layer with the rest of the filling ingredients. Press on the last of the cheese and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours or up to 1 day.

To serve: Invert the torta onto a serving platter; remove the bowl and the plastic wrap. Garnish wih fresh herbs and serve with a thinly sliced baguette or rustic crackers.
