I had this at a party once and no one could leave it alone, so I found a similar recipe and adjusted it to my tastes. This is also a beautiful cheese ball to serve on Christmas with it's red, white, and green colors.

How to Make Torta De Formaggio (Cheese Torte)


  1. 1. Beat softened cream cheese and butter in a bowl until smooth. (I sometimes kick it up with a spoon full of minced garlic during this step)
    2. Line a medium sized cereal bowl with plastic wrap.
    3. Scoop 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture into the bowl.
    4. Add a layer of green pesto.
    5. Add a layer of 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture.
    6. Add a layer of red pesto.
    7. Finish with last 1/3 of cream cheese mixture.
    8. Wrap the ends of the plastic wrap up to seal the cheese ball into the bowl to keep it's semi-sphere shape.
    9. Refrigerate over night to harden.
    10. Highly recommend serving with garlic french bread crisps (like melba toasts only in the bakery section)
