Let's Make It
Pour boiling water over tomatoes in small bowl; let stand 10 min.
Drain tomatoes, reserving liquid. Place reserved liquid, Neufchatel and pesto in blender; blend until smooth. Add tomatoes; blend just until combined. (A few chunks can remain.) Spoon into bowl.
Refrigerate 1 hour.
Top each cracker with 1 tsp. Neufchatel mixture and 1 artichoke piece just before serving.
Be sure to use the artichoke hearts that are canned in water, not marinated. A 14.5-oz. can of artichoke hearts in water frequently lists a drained weight of 8.5 oz.
