Layered Pesto & Cream Cheese Spread

1 8-ounce package plain cream cheese, softened
8 oz. basil pesto sauce in oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 medium tomatoes, diced (plum tomatoes are best)

Spread softened cream cheese over entire bottom of a shallow serving platter or pie plate. Evenly spread pesto sauce over the cream cheese. Sprinkle garlic over pesto and top with the chopped tomato. Place a spreader or small spoon in the dish for topping on toasted French bread. Serving Suggestions: This is great spread over toasted French bread slices, your favorite crackers, toasted bagels or pita chips cut into wedges, or that packaged cocktail rye bread.
