When I worked at Central Market, we would whip up a pesto cream cheese spread and serve it on our freshly baked breads. It became so popular that our store would sell out of Tex-A-France pesto every time we served it. You can choose your favorite pesto, it works well with all flavors. It has become a staple at my parties and always seems to be a crowd pleaser wherever I take it. And whats even better, you can make it in about (or less than) 5 minutes.
