This recipe comes from a good friend of mine, Tish Rohr. She had us over for the most fabulous dinner a couple of weeks ago, and this Ricotta Spread was what she had for an appetizer. I have cooked with Ricotta many times before, but never had it as a spread. She had everything exactly like I have it displayed in the picture. I kept asking her, what is this fabulous spread, I honestly couldn’t quit eating it. She served it with Artisan Roasted Garlic Bread, that you can buy at your local supermarket or bakery. She then toasted it in butter and olive oil, and added more garlic powder and salt. This recipe is so easy, you’ll want to try it out this weekend. She added fresh chives, dill, and green onions, to the whole milk Ricotta. So creamy, and full of fresh herb flavor, and on the warm bread, my mouth is watering right now thinking about it!
For those of you that follow me, you know my pictures have always been a struggle for me. However, I feel I have improved over the last year! I have so many recipes that I cook and have created, but either don’t want to wait to eat, while I take the picture, and neither does Pete, or the lighting isn’t quite right, or the picture just doesn’t turn out for some reason. Like, for instance, last night I made fresh pasta, with hot turkey sausage, in a vodka cream sauce with fresh mozzarella and Parmesan. I hope someday to get a great shot of this recipe. I have always heard pasta is hard to photograph, so I will keep trying, because I know you will want that recipe, and it’s fabulous. I also did a food video for a contest that I had entered, and will be posting that soon. Pete video taped me, and it was done in one take. So anyway here’s the recipe for the Ricotta Spread by Tish Rohr. Thanks so much Tish for sharing this delicious recipe with me! I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do! Let me know what you think! Love, Stacey
