I have made this several times for parties and meetings and they have always been a hit, and people constantly ask for the recipe! I have also made a modified version as well and have added a small clove of garlic and some pine nuts, the garlic gives it a little bit of a kick. I will probably roast the garlic if I use it again to take some of the bite out of it! It is a really easy, and delicious recipe!

I make these for almost every party I have and they are the first things to go. Everyone always asks for the recipe! When I have it on hand, I use asiago cheese instead of parmesan, but either way they are simply delicious.

I have not tasted or prepare this type of food before, so commenting on it would be a little defficult. But I think, it would be a very nice one. I also don't know about the recipe. If u can let me know a little about the recipe, that would be fine.

Yum, the first time I made this I used cream cheese and a store bought pesto...and it got rave reviews! The next time I made it I did the same and added a store bought bruchetta mix on top of the pesto...even better!!! This is a summer staple now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are absolutely delicious! These are absolutely delicious! I spread a thin layer of prepared pesto (instead of making my own) over the crm cheese and topped it off with grated mozzarella. I'm sure I'll make this again and again with slight variations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Italian... Very Italian... goes well with spaghetti in place of garlic bread. The apperance thew people off and made them weary but after they tried it they couldn't get enough of it. It also tastes good if you warm them up a bit!
