    Made this for my husband's 50th birthday party. It was a HIT.  -  07 Jan 2011


    This is a GREAT recipe, delicious flavors. It makes a ton of dip. It's not really a dip, but more of a layered "torte" of cheese, pesto, sundried tomatoes, etc. I made it for a Christmas gathering, and even with 15 guests, I still had quite a bit left over. I would suggest lining your serving plate with basil leaves so that they peek out from under the dip. Great presentation! Make sure to serve with crackers that are not salty. A toasted Italian bread or a sturdy water cracker works well.  -  02 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was very good and enjoyed by our guests. The only changes I made in the preparation was that I put the sundried tomatoes in the food processor. I do not care for them in chunks and it really spread more easily. I also put this in a small 4" springform pan. I did line it with plastic and it was so easy to present and looked beautiful. I was asked for the recipe and I will certainly make it again....oh, I used vodka too.  -  04 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
