I found this delicious dip recipe on a box of Wheat Thins. The taste is so amazing and elegant. If I didn't know better, I would have thought there was wine in the recipe. I tried each layer seperately and they were good - but perfect together on a cracker. The photo shown is what this recipe makes....for company, I would double it if I were you. Pesto and Red Pepper...a great combination now in my book!
