This recipe is SO EASY, and it seems silly to give it its own post, but it's also too good not to share. I have made this twice already- two weeks ago for a progressive dinner party and last week for our pre-Thanksgiving dinner happy hour. Both times it was a giant hit and when someone asked for the recipe, they couldn't believe how easy it was. I'm hosting an annual girls Christmas dinner in a few weeks and I do believe I'll be adding this to my heavy hors d'oeuvres menu.
Make this a night ahead for extra flavor!
Whipped Ricotta + Herbs
recipe from The Glitter Guide
Ricotta cheese (full fat)
Fresh herbs, finely chopped (I used rosemary, sage and thyme)
Good olive oil
Whip ricotta in a food processor for 30 seconds. Chop up fresh herbs and fold in with the ricotta. Add a dash of salt to taste. Before serving, drizzle with good olive oil.
I served my ricotta with toasted baguette slices. (Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, or until nice and toasted) My other favorite way to enjoy it? With a spoon.
