      This was so simple yet looked so elegant and totally company worthy..My family raved about this and there were so many yums and oh this is so good round the table.. I used a herb cream cheese and the combination of that with the pesto was totally delicious and sent this so over the top for us.. A really great recipe Vicki and one that will definitely be enjoyed again at many gatherings. I think I shall use this one to take to parties as it really does look impressive and what a taste sensation. Thanks for posting... Huge thumbs up from us all!!!

      I made this brie torta as an appetizer for a BBQ that I hosted yesterday. It was fantastic! Easy do-ahead preparation made it easy to serve when the guests arrived. Several people commented how much they enjoyed it. I used Classico basil pesto. We served the brie with an assortment of different crackers from Trader Joe's. This is a great summer appetizer that I will definitely make again. Thanks, Vicki!
