Staff member Michael B. would like to share this recipe from his personal collection. It’s been a big hit at staff parties. Thanks Michael!

Italian Layered Dip


8 oz. cream cheese

6 oz. goat cheese

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

6 oz. basil pesto, drained

8 oz. sun-dried tomato pesto, drained


Let cream cheese and goat cheese soften at room temperature.  Mix cheeses together with minced garlic.  Line a casserole dish or mold with plastic wrap.  Put 1/3 of the cheese mixture in the dish, spreading it evenly to the sides.  Next, layer ingredients in the following order: sun-dried tomato pesto, 1/3 cheese mixture, basil pesto, and remaining cheese mixture in the same manner.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour.

To serve, turn upside down on a platter.  Serve with crackers.
