Expert Tips

Don't be tempted to substitute either fat-free, reduced-fat or soft cream cheese for regular cream cheese in this recipe. Those varieties are softer, so the mixture would not be firm enough to mold.

Purchase minced sun-dried tomatoes to eliminate chopping the tomatoes. Make the torte in a disposable loaf pan. Transporting the torte to the party will be easy, and you won't have to worry about bringing the pan home!
