Tomato Goat Cheese Spread: Layer pesto, sun-dried tomato, and a mixture of goat cheese and cream cheese for an impressive appetizer with Mediterranean flavors. Serve with French bread slices or crackers. To garnish as in our photo, cut one dried tomato into slivers. Gently press fresh oregano sprigs and tomato slivers in a decorative pattern over the top of the cheese after it is inverted.
