Delicious hot pesto dip perfect for holiday entertaining Make it even easier by using a jar of pre-made pesto from Costco!
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 12
  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese
  • 2 to 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • ½ to 1 cup pesto
  • Fresh Parmesan cheese (I used freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano)
  1. Cut cream cheese in half horizontally so you have two thinner blocks of cream cheese and lay them side by side in a baking dish. (I used a 9-inch glass pie pan.) Spread pesto evenly over the cream cheese. Sprinkle with a layer of Parmesan. Sprinkle with diced tomatoes. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes until bubbly. Serve with crackers (try the Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil Triscuits) or a sliced baguette.
