Lately, the weather around here has been crazy and afternoon storms have been rolling in.  That means my guys have been hanging out, doing some summer reading or better yet, having a few friends over.  Either way, there’s always a snack involved.  Last week, all of us were tired of  the “favorites” so I needed to add something new.  I’m glad I had a stocked pantry and fridge because this dish came together in no time flat!  I think I’ve got a new favorite to add to my list…

Recipe Notes

Bottled pizza sauce can be used if you have it on hand - I make my own since I always have tomato sauce in the pantry.

To bring refrigerated cream cheese to room temp, heat a mug/small bowl of water in microwave for 1 minute. Open cream cheese packet, cut into squares and place on a plate. Put cream cheese into microwave along with the hot water and close door. Leave in for 1 minute - DO NOT turn microwave on. Cream cheese should be soft enough to work with after 1 minute.
