Ever need a quick, easy, go-to appetizer for parties?
I've got you covered.
This recipe fits the bill. It is SO tasty. And it makes for a pretty presentation..........
Cream Cheese Pesto Spread
8 oz. package of cream cheese
1/4 cup of pesto
1/4 cup of mozzarella
1 small tomato, diced
Triscuits or French bread
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil. Place the brick of cream cheese in the center of the foil. Top with pesto, mozzarella, and tomato. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the mozzarella is melted (but the cream cheese is still holding its shape). Carefully transfer the spread, keeping it in the foil, to a platter. On the platter, surround foil with crackers or slices of French bread! It will spread easily with a butter knife.
*My scalloped bread was made by baking refrigerated French bread dough in a Pampered Chef bread tube.

A friend introduced me to this recipe years ago, and it has been a party staple ever since. It can be thrown together in NO TIME! Clean up is minimal!
And I can promise you, there won't be any leftover.
