Baked Ricotta

Ever have those days when you have a tub of ricotta that’s about to expire so you go to Google to see how you can use it (other than by making a lasagna)? I did. ūüėÜ And what I turned that ricotta into was YUM!!!¬†

This one came from Baked Ricotta Recipe РAn Italian in my Kitchen. 

Ingredients

     Tomato Topping

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 400F.

In a medium bowl beat the egg with a whisk, then add the ricotta cheese, ¬ľ cup of parmesan cheese, oregano, salt and pepper, whisk together until completed combined.

Spoon the ricotta into a small 5-6 inch oven safe baking dish, then sprinkle with the tablespoon of parmesan cheese. Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil. Serve warm or room temperature.

NOTE: I served this with slices of warm crusty bread. Grab a baguette, slice into 1/2″ slices, brush all slices (both sides) with olive oil and lay individually on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes (until toasted however you like it). Once removed from oven, rub each piece of toast with a clove of garlic. This is so so so yummy! You can also serve the dip with sliced veggies or breadsticks.

Enjoy!
