Chef Paola Martinenghi's Quick & Easy Ricotta Appetizer - Perfect for Quick Entertaining


Ciao! I wanted to share a quick recipe that you can whip up in no time at all. It's creamy, salty and beautiful.

The Ricotta we have in Italy (as is everything!) is fantastic. I encourage you, as I always do with my clients, to buy the best ricotta you can find. If you can find it made with Italian milk, that will always be the best!

QUICK RICOTTA APPETIZER

Sun-Dried tomatoes, minced

Extra Virgin Olive Oil D.O.P.

Italian toasts, or hearty bread

METHOD

Slice your bread into 1 inch thick pieces, drizzle with a bit of D.O.P. Olive oil, and warm under the broiler until just slightly golden. When ready, put a dollop of fresh ricotta on top warmed Italian toasts. Top with a sprinkle of minced capers and sun-dried tomatoes. Easy, and perfect for an elegant appetizer.
