Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple makes this simple herbed ricotta for almost all of his parties because it’s such a crowd-pleaser. It’s addictive spread on toasted bread but is also perfect served with crudités. Slideshow: More Ricotta Recipes
In a food processor, puree the ricotta, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic and the 1/4 cup of olive oil until smooth. Scrape into a medium bowl, stir in the herbs and season generously with salt and pepper.
Light a grill. Brush the baguettes with olive oil. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred, 3 minutes. Drizzle the herbed ricotta with olive oil and garnish with herbs and cracked pepper. Serve with the bread.
Rave reviews on this from my guests. DELICIOUS. I used a bit more zest and a bit less lemon juice.
This herb ricotta looks amazing!
