It's time to whip up some Pesto Goat Cheese Spread. It's the perfect appetizer for a holiday get together, ladies' night, or football party for a number of reasons:
- You can make it ahead and bring it to room temperature before your guests arrive.
- It takes two minutes to throw together. Literally, people. Two minutes.
- Red and green. Merry Christmas. Put on Nat King Cole and smile with holiday spirit.
- It tastes unbelievably fabulous.
You don't have a party coming up, you say? Well, don't let that stop you! The husband and I shoveled this stuff down our gullets for dinner the other night.
Pesto Goat Cheese Spread
8 ounces goat cheese at room temperature
1/3 cup prepared pesto
4 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes
3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
Pita chips, slices of baguette, or crackers for serving
Spread goat cheese onto a pretty plate or platter. The goat cheese should be about 1/4" thick so you can scoop it up with your cracker or a knife. Top with pesto, spreading it towards the edges, but leave a border of goat cheese so you can see the white color peaking out of the bottom. Sprinkle sun-dried tomatoes and then pine nuts over the pesto. Serve at room temperature with your favorite crackers, crusty bread, or pita chips.
