Pick your favorite cracker of bread and slather this spread on thick. It’s pretty simple to make and you can store the rest until for use.

  2. Evenly spread pesto sauce over the cream cheese.
  3. Sprinkle garlic over pesto and top with the chopped tomato.
  4. Place a spreader or small spoon in the dish for topping on toasted French bread, crackers, toasted bagels, pita chips or packaged cocktail rye bread.
