Warm Ricotta with Roasted Grapes
This is an elegant appetizer for any party, but it's most lovely during colder months, topped with sweet roasted grapes. Slideshow: Easy Holiday Hors d'Oeuvres
Variation: To garnish the ricotta simply, roast a cluster of grapes in a 500° oven for about 8 minutes.
Sparkling red Lambrusco is a fun pairing for a cheese course and is fantastic with grapes, which become even more intensely sweet when roasted. Try the NV Chiarli Centenario Amabile.
