This is my go-to recipe for when company comes over and I need a quick snack to serve while we chat. You can substitute about seven minutes in the microwave for the time in the oven and it'll also work just fine!


  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup grated parmesean cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 8oz jar pasta sauce or marinara
  • 1/2 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 large bag of corn or tortilla chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl, mix Italian seasoning into cream cheese.
  • Spread in the bottom of a 9" casserole dish.
  • Combine parmesean and mozzarella cheeses and sprinkle half the mixture over the cream cheese.
  • Top with the jar of pasta sauce, then make another layer with the rest of the shredded cheese.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  • Top with red pepper and black olives and serve with dipping chips.
