This Pesto Strata recipe won first prize in The 2015 Old Farmer’s Almanac “Dips and Spreads” Recipe Contest! Congratulations to winner Nancy Vargas from Sierra Madre, California.
Combine pesto ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add additional oil as necessary to create a smooth paste.
Mix cream cheese and butter and set aside. Line a deep bowl or container with plastic wrap. Put one-third of the filling on the bottom, followed by one-third of the pesto. Repeat the layers two more times. Cover and place in refrigerator. When ready to serve, invert onto a serving dish.
