Heat the oven to 180ºC.
Set aside a quarter of the grated pecorino.
Put all the remaining ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir very well to combine.
The mixture should form a slightly firm paste. If it looks too dry, add a little milk.
Pack the mixture into bowls and top with the remaining grated Pecorino.
Bake at 180º C for ten minutes, or until the mixture is bubbling and heated right through.
Now turn on the oven grill and grill for a few minutes, or until the topping is golden.
Serve very hot, with nachos or crackers.

Serves 6 to 8 as a starter
