Italian Pesto Spread

Submitted by LOJ

Another gem of Kraft Food’s magazine. I made this for a get together and it was a huge hit! As one of my friends said, “get that dip away from me, it’s like crack.


  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) neufchatel cheese (cream cheese would probably work too)
  • 1/4 cup pesto (I used premade in essence of time)
  • 1 plum tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Finely Shredded Italian Five Cheese Blend
  • TRISCUIT Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil Crackers – these crackers are what makes it!


  1. Heat grill to medium heat. Place unwrapped neufchatel cheese on 8-inch square sheet of heavy-duty foil; top with pesto, tomatoes and shredded cheese.
  2. Place foil on grill; cover with lid. Grill 8 to 10 min. or until shredded cheese is melted and cream cheese is softened, but still holding its shape. (I imagine you can warm it in the oven too).
  3. Transfer foil to platter. Serve spread with crackers.
