Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut baguette into ¼-inch-thick slices. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive or garlic oil. Bake 10-12 minutes or until bread is golden brown. Remove from oven; cool completely.

Line colander with paper towels. Place spinach into the colander; wrap paper towels around spinach and press until almost dry. Place cream cheese into a microwave safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 30 seconds, or until softened. Stir in spinach and rub; mix well. Add feta cheese; stir until well blended. Finely dice sun-dried tomatoes. Line a small round bowl with plastic wrap.
Spoon one-third of the cheese mixture into bottom of batter bowl, spreading evenly. Top with tomatoes, forming an even layer. Spread remaining cheese mixture over tomatoes. Refrigerate overnight.

To serve, invert torta onto serving platter. Remove plastic wrap. Coarsely chop pistachios; press onto top of torta. Serve with toasted baguette slices.
