Pesto Festo

Since my newest crave is fresh pesto, this is a quick and easy appetizer or addition to any meal.

Fresh loaf of bread
Low fat Ricotta Cheese
Olive Oil

Take the loaf of bread and slice it thin. Drizzle with a little olive oil, and lightly toast in the oven or toaster. Place a couple spoonfuls of ricotta in a dish and top with a bit of pesto. Drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil on top just to keep it creamy. Once bread is toasted, serve with the ricotta and pesto spread.

This is a wonderful alternative to garlic bread, as the ricotta gives it a creamy texture on the toasted bread, and the pesto gives a fragrant garlic and basil flavor. I like the ricotta because it gives it a really light, mild flavor and is easy to spread. However, if you want to kick up the flavor, substitute soft goat cheese for a sinful and simple addition to any meal.
