The Basic Fundamentals

Soften cream cheese quickly. Unwrap it & place on a microwave-safe plate. Cook on HIGH power for 10 to 15 seconds.

2 {8-oz} packages cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cups shredded Italian blend cheese, divided
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 {1-oz} package chopped fresh basil
4 scallions, sliced
3 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup spicy marinara sauce
25 low-fat or regular pepperoni slices
2 provolone cheese slices
Garnish: Fresh parsley & crushed red pepper flakes
Toasted baguette slices or pita crackers

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup Italian cheese blend, the sour cream, the mayonnaise, the basil, the scallions, the garlic & the red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Spread into a lightly greased oval 3-quart casserole dish. Spread the marinara sauce over the cream cheese mixture. Top with the remaining 3/4 cup Italian cheese blend. Arrange the pepperoni slices to resemble a football shape in the center of the dish. Bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the provolone cheese slices to resemble football laces. Remove the dish from the oven & arrange the cheese slices in the center of the pepperoni. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese melts & the dip is warm in the center. Garnish, if desired. Serve with toasted baguette slices or pita crackers.

The Extra Point

A variety of cheeses may be used to make the football laces from Havarti to Mozzarella. Adding them late during the baking process will have the design looking it’s very best for serving.

A half sheet pan always proves to be a valuable tool when baking casseroles, dips & items that have the potential to bubble over. In the case of this particular dip, it will be less cumbersome to place it into & remove from the oven. Add a few minutes to the bake time to ensure the ingredients are throughly heated.
