Roasted Garlic & Tomato Spread

  Bold flavors and a creamy consistency make this spread a crowd-pleaser. Serve it warm or chilled with pita chips, crackers or breads. 
2 whole garlic bulbs
3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
3 plum tomatoes, quartered
1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
Crackers or snack breads
Remove papery outer skin from garlic (do not peel or separate cloves). Cut tops off of garlic bulbs; brush each with 1/2 teaspoon oil. Wrap each bulb in heavy-duty foil. Place garlic and tomatoes in a foil-lined 9-in. square baking pan. Brush tomatoes with remaining oil.
Bake at 425° for 30-35 minutes or until garlic is softened. Cool for 10-15 minutes; squeeze garlic into a small bowl. Drain any liquid from tomatoes; chop and add to garlic. Stir in the cream cheese, Italian seasoning and salt. Serve with your favorite crackers or snack breads. Yield: 1-1/2 cups.
