This is one of my new favorite appetizers! I had a small crock (about 6" by 4") that I put the cream cheese in and spread it to the edges. I didn't bake it - just put it in the microwave. It was a big hit! I will definitely make it again!
Very, very good. We used a little more pesto and baked it in the oven. The only drawback is once the pesto on top is eaten, you are left with a good bit of cream cheese. I think I will slice it, then top it so it goes down into the block.
This is excellent as spread on pita bread or cooked and cooled crescent roll dough as a base for a cold summer pizza, too. All you do is just combine the softened cream cheese and pesto and spread on which ever dough you choose, then proceed with your choice of toppings.
Mmmm, Mmmm, Good! I make a similar dip with salsa, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese and it's always a huge hit so I knew this one would be amazing! I made some homemade pita chips coated with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, ground black pepper, onion/garlic powder, & parmesan cheese to go with ours and it was delish! For those of you who are having trouble with the amount of pesto versus the amount of cream cheese, I have a solution for you. The dip that I make that is similar to this I let my cream cheese soften, then I take a round baking dish lined with foil, put the block in the middle, and spread it around the pan by smashing it with a rubber spatula. Spread your topping on and cover with the cheese and each bite has the same amount of cream cheese and topping. Hope this helps!! :)
Fast and easy appetizer. If you have already have the coals hot, this one will please your guests.
Even though this recipe seems too simple to be true, it is so so good. Takes 5 minutes to make but the result is delicious and gourmet. I made it in the oven and I can't wait to try it on a grill.
I hate pesto..so I don't know why I made this. But it was sooooooo good I couldn't stop eating it! Amazing!
Wow! So quick, so easy! Everyone loved it and I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks again for the great addition to my recipe box!
