Eat Ricotta

Ilana FreddyeComment
This is a crowd pleaser.

A recipe for success if you will.  

Because sometimes I just run out of ideas; I have no idea what to cook or what to draw. 

Creativity block? I guess it's all a part of the process. 

Thankfully I have some fail-safe backups, like sketching the alphabet or serving a big delicious bowl of ricotta.



This is an "easier than you could imagine" dish.

And you know what? People LOVE it! Yah, that's you winning at life.



1/2 pound ricotta 
(higher quality ricotta tastes significantly better, try checking at Italian markets or cheese shops or you can make your own!)
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (sage, rosemary, thyme) + 2 Tablespoons chopped basil
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

1. put the ricotta in a serving bowl
2. mix half of the chopped herbs/basil in with the ricotta with a large pinch of salt & ground pepper
3. sprinkle the remaining herbs on top. Top it off with a very generous drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt & a little more ground black pepper. 

Done and Done. It's hardly even a recipe but it's downright tasty.
I like to serve it with a crusty loaf of bread, crackers, sliced up veggies, pita, or some grilled bread.
