This is a great, simple appetizer that can be thrown together in the time someone calls to tell you they are coming over to the time they arrive at your door. Depending on the pesto you use (and I totally cheated with this one, no time to make my own so it came from a jar!) the garlicky taste of this creamy dip really stands out.
Make sure to chop the red pepper very small - you don't want to be chomping on big pieces of pepper! If you don't like feta, I think this would be good with any crumbly cheese. A word on the citing of this recipe: this is from the back of a Wheat Thins box (shameful, I know), but try as I might I could not find it on the website. So I just linked you to the general Kraft recipe site, which is very good as well - lots of good stuff on there!
