  1. Line a 3-cup bowl with plastic wrap, leaving a 4-inch overhang.
  2. Combine spinach, basil, and garlic in a food processor and chop finely. Add Parmesan cheese and process until almost smooth. Keep processor running while pouring in oil; process until a smooth paste forms. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix cream cheese and goat cheese together in a bowl.
  4. Spread 1/3 of the cheese mixture in the bottom of the prepared bowl. Spread 1/2 of the spinach mixture on top. Top with 1/2 of the walnuts. Add 1/2 of the sun-dried tomatoes. Repeat with remaining cheese mixture, spinach mixture, walnuts, and tomatoes, ending with cheese mixture. Fold plastic overhang on top and gently push down to compress layers.
  5. Refrigerate for 8 hours, or up to 3 days. Unfold plastic top and invert bowl onto a serving plate. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
