This is one of my new favorite appetizers! I had a small crock (about 6" by 4") that I put the cream cheese in and spread it to the edges. I didn't bake it - just put it in the microwave. It was a big hit! I will definitely make it again!

Very, very good. We used a little more pesto and baked it in the oven. The only drawback is once the pesto on top is eaten, you are left with a good bit of cream cheese. I think I will slice it, then top it so it goes down into the block.

This is excellent as spread on pita bread or cooked and cooled crescent roll dough as a base for a cold summer pizza, too. All you do is just combine the softened cream cheese and pesto and spread on which ever dough you choose, then proceed with your choice of toppings.
