That's it?! (Easy yummy goat cheese dip)

During football season, Gentleman Caller and I went over to my friend Becca's for a full day of fun, football and food, my favorite things.  Before we made dinner, her husband's friend insisted he make us an appetizer; and then pulled out a jar of marinara sauce from his bag of expensive wine.  We were intrigued as to what he was going to do with it.  He told us not to worry and get back to our football watching.  About 20 minutes later, we all could smell something yummy.

We all dipped bread in his concoction and wondered what this magic was he had created.  He told us sheepishly what the recipe was; he poured a jar of marinara sauce over goat cheese and baked it.  Yup, that was all.  Oh and he put a little black pepper on top.  I could not believe it! I filed that away in my head and decided to try it myself one day.  That day came for my ladies Christmas gift exchange.  I made it for that and the result was the same, no one could believe how easy it was.

OMG y'all this is the easiest appetizer ever!  It is so full of flavor, your guests will never know if it basically two ingredients and so hands off!  The flavor is so rich with just jarred sauce, I can't imagine how good it would be with homemade sauce!  I made homemade toasts to go with it because I am a type-A overachiever.  Store bought, fresh french bread or bagel chips would be great with this too.  Make this!  You will thank me I promise!  And just in time for your Superbowl party planning! Linking up with the lovely hosts of Meal Plan Monday!
