Pesto Crostini

This is a great recipe for a dinner party appetizer, everyone will love it! Remember some store-bought pestos are just as good as homemade. Try
spreading a thin layer of prepared pesto over the cream cheese and top it off with grated mozzarella. Feel free to add your own variations to fit your personal taste!

3 cups fresh basil leaves, washed, dried
1/3 cup KRAFT Classic Italian Vinaigrette Dressing
1/3 cup KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese
32 baguette slices (1/4-inch thick), toasted
1 container (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese Spread
1/4 cup KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese

PLACE basil leaves, dressing and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese in food processor or blender container; cover. Process until well blended.
SPREAD baguette slices evenly with cream cheese spread, then with pesto mixture.
SPRINKLE evenly with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
