Roasted Red Pepper Dip

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by JillAZ

This dip is just delicious! I think it came from and old cooking light book. Very yummy! Prep time includes time to roast the peppers. You can use jarred roasted peppers but I like the fresh ones! Note: neufchatel cheese is light cream cheese.

First of all, don't know what neufchatel cheese was, so I used feta. It turned out watery and chunky. This is probably due to the feta, but really, me and my grocer had no idea what neufchatel cheese was.
