This beautiful appetizer has just two ingredients – Goat cheese and Marinara. I usually use a store bought marinara but you can always make your own too. The superstar of this appetizer though is the goat cheese. Once you have a little slather of this soft gooey cheese you will never go back. Its smooth and creamy, earthy and lemony. It is a perfect compliment to a garlicky marinara sauce. It takes just a few minutes to put both the ingredients together in a baking dish and tossing it into the oven. Wait till the goat cheese turns nice and golden and bubbles along with the marinara.

This dip is so simple, so rustic and insanely addictive. Serve it with a nice crusty bread or crackers. It can be served as an appetizer or it also makes a lovely light dinner for two.
