How to make it

  • Throw everything but the tomatoes into the food processor and process until it is paste like.
  • Hollow out the cherry tomatoes
  • Put the pesto cream cheese in a baggie, cut the tip off of one of the bottom corners of the bag to create a 'pastry' type bag, and pipe the cheese mixture into the tomatoes
  • Sprinkle chopped basil on top for garnish if desired.
  • This also works well as an appetizer if you spread the pesto cheese on a crostini and then top it with a tomato slice. The cream cheese pesto alone is dip worthy with veggies, pita chips, crackers, anything. Tasty.
  • Cook down the garlic for 1 min or so before you add it to the mix if you don't want the intensity of raw garlic flavor.
  • Also, if you make it ahead be aware that the garlic flavor will intensify over time.
