Directions

  1. Line one 7-1/2x3-1/2x2-1/2-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving enough excess hang over the sides to cover finished spread. To help keep the wrap in place while spreading, tape down the sides.
  2. In a food processor, combine goat cheese and cream cheese. Cover and process until smooth; divide mixture into three equal portions (a generous 1/2 cup each).
  3. To one portion of cheese mixture stir in the pesto; spread in bottom of prepared pan. Sprinkle snipped basil on top. Spoon another portion of cheese mixture over basil and spread carefully. Top with the 1/2 cup chopped roasted red sweet pepper. Stir tomato paste and dried tomatoes into remaining portion of cheese mixture. Spoon into pan and spread carefully.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.
  5. To serve, fold back plastic wrap and invert onto a small serving platter. Remove and discard plastic wrap. Serve spread with bread slices, crackers and/or pears. If desired, garnish with red pepper strips and small basil leaves. Makes 16 servings.
