Quick Layered Pesto Spread
Contributed by Doree Donley

Ingredients

1 8-ounce package plain cream cheese, softened

8 ounces of store bought basil pesto sauce in oil (or homemade if you're feeling ambitious)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 medium tomatoes, diced (plum tomatoes are best for this)

 

Directions

Spread softened cream cheese over entire bottom of a shallow serving platter or pie plate.

Evenly spread pesto sauce over the cream cheese.

Sprinkle garlic over pesto and top with the chopped tomato.

Place a spreader or small spoon in the dish for topping on toasted French bread.

Serving Suggestions: This is great spread over toasted French bread slices, your favorite crackers, toasted bagels or pita

chips cut into wedges, or that packaged cocktail rye bread.
