very rich but everyone loves it. I thinnned it out a little by using more sour cream and whipped it in a mixer. I made it twice this Christams the first time I used regular cream cheese and sour cream the second time with light cream cheese and reduced fat sour cream. It was just as good. bought french bread loaf and sliced and broiled it myself instead of using crackers. Made a difference. Also for christmas touch I layered the top with the cream cheese filling and then used the pesto to make a star on top. festive!
really enjoyed this and very easy to make. i make a few bowls of it every christmas. if you buy sun dried tomato pesto in addition to regular basil pesto then the red/white/green effect is very cute for christmas. also took the previous commenter's advice and left the top layer the white mixture and then drew a christmas tree on top with the basil pesto.
This dip was a big hit with a church group and my husband. I substituted ricotta cheese and half and half for the sour cream because I didn't have any. To make the layers look pretty I used icing bags with a number 10 tip. I also ended with the white layer on top because my homemade pesto tends to brown quickly. I served it with garlic melba toasts.
I think this took me all of 10 min to prepare I had everything on hand for a quick late night snack with crackers. The guys absolutely loved it-I'm surprised the bowl wasn't licked clean! I used sun-dried tomato pesto instead of the typical green pesto. Yummy & Healthy! Thanks! 2nd time I made this dip I tried a jar of Bruschetta (no pesto) and it came out very hearty and delicious.
I made this for a New Year's party this past weekend. Unfortnately I only had a red glass bowl so it was hard to see the stripes but the dip was rich and delicious. I used pecans instead of walnuts just because I prefer them. The next time I may try using pine nuts.
