    Had to add some extra pesto, but overall it's a very good dip.

    i used a tub of the whipped cream cheese and threw the entire 7 oz tub of pest o in- turned out great. so easy. i served with wheat thins and baby carrots.

    I added 2 extra T of pesto for extra flavor and 1/4 c milk to thin the dip out since it was VERY thick - it was great though after these minor modifications!
