Chèvre cheese adds dimension to Parmesan and cream cheese in this easy party spread that's perfectly suited to crackers or bread.
Updated Nov 22, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 1 package (6 oz) chèvre (goat) cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • Sourdough cocktail bread slices or crackers

Steps

  • 1
    In food processor, process all cheeses until well blended. Add basil and bell pepper; process with quick on-and-off motions until finely chopped and well blended. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.
  • 2
    Spoon cheese mixture into 3 (1-cup) ramekins or 1 (3-cup) bowl. Serve with bread slices.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can use 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves instead of the fresh basil.
  • tip 2
    Add a flavor kick to one of the three cheese bowls by stirring in red pepper sauce, a drop or two at a time to taste. Label the bowl as "spicy" so as not to surprise guests.
