Herbed Ricotta Spread

Herbed Ricotta Spread - sunflower-seed-studded bread, sliced and spread with white cheese mixed with green herbs. Parsley garnish. Wooden cutting board on grey cement surface.

Delicious, luscious and easy – what more can you ask for? Serve with fancy crackers or grilled baguette if you’re really feeling like going all out, otherwise enjoy on toast or bagels with figs and balsamic vinegar, or top with garden-fresh tomato slices…whatever gives you joy. Serves 4 – 6.
