Marinara Goat Cheese Dip is the ultimate comfort food dip, served steamy with garlicky bread, easy homemade marinara and capers.
The inspiration for Marinara Goat Cheese Dip came from the amazing world of tapas.
AHHH, aren’t tapas just the best?! To me, there is nothing better than dozens of beautiful plates on the table and trying everyone else’s dish at a rowdy dinner party. And that is right where TJH fits in. Shareables like Marinara Goat Cheese Dip are the core of the blog, especially when served with sangria. And I am so pumped to share this delectable dip, because it’s a lot easier than you may think!
Marinara Goat Cheese Dip uses homemade marinara sauce as the base, but can be easily switched out for store-bought.
If you have the 20 minutes, making the marinara sauce can be very therapeutic and totally something to brag about. I love putting on some Adele, chopping onion, garlic and basil and simmering into goodness. However, I get you, busy hostesses. I love Newman’s Own Marinara Pasta Sauce because it’s delish, easy and all proceeds go to charity. You do you!
The necessary baking tool for Marinara Goat Cheese Dip? You gotta have the cast iron skillet.
Okay, so you don’t have to have a cast iron skillet, a ceramic baking dish will totally work too. But if you have one, here’s why I think it’s the perfect dish:
- Easy transition from making the marinara on the stove top to oven.
- Even cooking temp = bubbly cheese everywhere.
- Presentation. If it’s cold outside, the cast iron skillet makes me think of a cabin in the woods and it adds to the comfort of the app.
- So easy to clean.
If you need a cast iron skillet, see the end of the post for the link to amazon.
