This fancy pants appetizer is a snap to make!
It’s the time of year for gatherings galore – which means growing your repertoire of potluck dishes to impress your hostesses and guests. I’m going to show you a dish that looks all fancy-pants, but is super easy to make: Pesto, Olive and Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Torta Appetizer.
Spoon a layer of pesto evenly on top of the cheese mixture, then gently spoon another one fourth of the cheese mixture, spreading it evenly.
Repeat these steps, next with roasted red peppers and cheese mixture, then the diced olives and last bit of cheese mixture. I like using my Rubbermaid Brilliance containers for this recipe, because I can clearly see how my Torta layers are looking while I work.
For best results, refrigerate the Torta for at least two hours.
To serve, simply invert the Torta onto your serving dish and remove the plastic wrap. Serve with toasted French bread. Simply slice your bread to the desired thickness, brush the slices lightly with olive oil, and broil on low for just a few minutes, until slightly brown.
Isn’t it pretty? It tastes even better.
This savory appetizer is sure to get rave reviews at your next holiday gathering.
