Good quick appetizer! DH and I often snack on this while I am cooking dinner when we are really hungry and just need a little something to tide us over! I used chopped sundried tomatoes since I HATE raw tomatoes -- but if you like them by all means use the raw ones! :) This is from Kraft Foods!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package neufchatel cheese

Mmmmm! I used sundried tomato pesto, and 1/4 tsp. dried basil. We liked it a lot when just made, even better after a night in the fridge. A great addition to any party.

Thanks Sarahbeth for posting! I really enjoyed this as did my guests and DH. It was a great warm and creamy appetizer. I served it with triscuits and townhouse crackers and accented with fresh rosemary sprigs. Will make again and again. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup game June 2010. Enjoy! ChefDLH
