toasted pine nuts
fresh basil leaves
2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
I used two packages of reduced fat cream cheese. Other than that, I made no other changes. Oh man. This is DELICIOUS. GREAT with homemade pita chips.
My family thought this was a bit sweet and felt like it was missing something. I think with the addition of some parmesan cheese it would be a winner for us.
This recipe was sent out in one of Allrecipes' newsletters, and since we were invited to an evening gathering of neighbors for appetizers and drinks, having all the ingredients on hand I thought I'd give it a try. After a very quick and easy prep, I had a delicious cheese spread that was great with a variety of crackers, and everyone enjoyed it!
Delightful summer dip with fresh basil from the garden. Great on Pretzel Thins or a nutty-flavored cracker. Enjoyed by adults and teens.
At first I thought this was a bit bland, but the basil flavor really developed after a few hours in the fridge. I'll make it in advance next time. Nice recipe, thanks :)
so easy to make I put Basil garlic and nuts into whizz then added balsamic, cream cheese at this stage I felt it neeeded something so I added a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice (if I had Parmesan would have added that),but it is so yummy thanks Pauline
i am not a basil fan so i used dill instead. Fabulous!
To bland for our taste.
