Ricotta baked with cheese and herbs is a fast, simple appetizer ideal for entertaining. Serve it alongside cured meats and crostini or crackers. Since the ricotta is the star here, be sure to use good-quality or homemade cheese for the best flavor and texture.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 300°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Lightly coat a 2-cup baking dish with olive oil; set aside.
  2. 2Place ricotta, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of the Pecorino Romano, and the oregano in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
  3. 3Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish, sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons Pecorino Romano, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake until heated through and the Pecorino Romano on top is melted, about 30 minutes. Serve warm with toasted bread or crostini.
