A rich, savory Cheese spread featuring the tastes of Italy, warm and comforting!

Ingredients Needed For Baked Layered Italian Spread
* 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
* 2 tablespoons grated asiago Cheese
* 1/3 cup pesto sauce
* 1/2 teaspoon minced roasted garlic
* 1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella Cheese
* 1/4 cup minced roasted red peppers (from the jar is fine)
* 2 tablespoons chopped parma Ham or prosciutto (omit if making vegetarian style)
* 1/4 cup cooked small white beans
* 1/3 cup chopped black olives or green olives (your choice)
* 1/3 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
* 1 tablespoon minced red onions
* 1 tablespoon freshly minced parsley

Directions To Prepare Baked Layered Italian Spread
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
* In a bowl, cream together the cream cheese, Parmesan, and Asagio; spread into the bottom of a 9-inch deep-dish pie dish.
* Mix together the pesto and roasted garlic; spread in a layer over the cheeses on the dish.
* Spread the shredded mozzarella over the pesto layer, then sprinkle with the roasted red pepper.
* Mix together the Parma Ham or prosciutto and the cooked white Beans; set aside.
* To arrange the last layer, mentally divide the contents of the dish into three equal"pie slice" shaped sections, then: (1) over one section, arrange the black or green olives, (2) over another section, arrange the artichoke hearts, (3) and over another layer the Parma and bean mixture.
* Sprinkle the entire dish with the Onion and parsley, and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 20 minutes and it's bubbly.
* Remove from oven and serve hot with dippers such as Endive leaves or thin slices of toasted Italian bread.
* NOTE: you can leave out the Parma Ham if you want it to be vegetarian; also, this can be made up ahead of time and reheated, if necessary.
