Basil Cheese Spread

A co-worker brought this stuff in last week and was kind enough to type out the recipe for us. I grabbed a copy, but I know it'll just get lost in the depths of my purse. Since this is a good placeholder for recipes, I thought I'd post it here for future reference.

This stuff should be called Crack Spread. It's sooo addictive!

Basil Cheese Spread

6 fresh basil leaves
3 medium cloves garlic
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup olive oil
fresh basil leaves for garnish

In food processor, process basil and garlic until finely chopped.

Add softened cream cheese, Parmesan, walnuts, and olive oil. Process until smooth.

Transfer spread mixture to a serving bowl and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
