Prep Time: 10 min Total Time: 35 min Yield: 8 Serving
Nutrition facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
40 butter flavored crackers (such as Ritz)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese or 1 (8 ounce) package neufchatel cheese, at room temperature
1 (16 ounce) jarmarinated sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil (the kind I tried had Italian seasonings in the oil already)
1 tablespoon italian seasoning (optional)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaf, shredded, garnish (optional)
If your sundried tomatoes do not already have Italian seasoned herbs in their oil, you will need to first stir in 1 Tbsp of Italian seasoning blend to your tomatoes, then cover and chill overnight.
Drain off the oil from your tomatoes.
Spread a generous spoonful of cream cheese onto each cracker and top with a strip of marinated sundried tomato.
Place onto a platter and garnish with strips of fresh basil leaves, if desired.
