Tri-Torta with Toasted Crostini

-

Yield: 3 cups

1 ( 7 ounce) jar basil pesto

2 tablespoons Cayenne Chile olive oil

1 (8 ounce) jar sundried tomatoes, chopped

1 small can chopped black olives

3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

3 tablespoons lemon juice

Procedure:

In a large mixing bowl whip cream cheese with lemon juice until smooth and spreadable; set aside. Empty pesto into a bowl and stir in chile oil; set aside. Spray a 3-cup clear bowl with cooking oil and line with plastic wrap.

Spread whipped cream cheese across the bottom of the bowl to make a half-inch layer. Next spread pesto on top of cream cheese, then another half-inch layer of cream cheese. Next spread the chopped olives and on top of the olives make another half-inch layer of cream cheese. Then a last layer of sundried tomatoes and top off with cream cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

The next day invert the bowl on a serving plate and remove the plastic wrap. Serve with toasted bread, fresh veggies or crackers.
