How to Make Cream Cheese and Pesto Dip


  1. Spray a medium size piece of aluminum foil with non stick spray. Place blocks of cream cheese next to each other in center of foil
  2. Spread pesto sauce over top of cream cheese. Slice the cherry tomatoes and position on top of pesto. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Lightly sprinkle top with shredded italian cheese.
  3. loosly wrap foil around the cream cheese mixture, leaving space at the top (kind of tented) and place on cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 just until soft and warm and flavors melded (about 30 minutes)
    Serve with Triscuits (I use the herb type)
