After making Ina Garten's Fresh Ricotta, I found her recipe for Herbed Ricotta Brushcettas and want to share it with all of you here. It is so delicious and easy!

Ina's recipe calls to grill the bread, which is fine but if it is winter, I just put the slices in the toaster or in the oven on a sheet pan until golden brown. The whole idea is to toast them, but grilling ads extra char which is yummy.
