My review is for taste but not appearance or ease of making. While this did taste good I probably will not be making it again because it was unexpectedly time consuming. Trying to spread cream cheese on soft pesto is a bad plan. My suggestion to the next person who takes this on is to put the pesto in the pan then put it in the freezer to make it hard enough to spread the cheese on. Pesto freezes just fine and that would make things a lot easier. I also suggest chopping more olives and sun-dried tomatoes than it calls for -- otherwise they will get lost in all the cream cheese and it won't look pretty like the picture.
