We had a delicious loaf of fresh crusty bread on Sunday, and I immediately knew this recipe would go sooo well with our sausage and peppers pasta – and it did! We devoured it!
1 loaf French bread
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 head of garlic
1 Tbsp parsley
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Peel back the first few layers of the garlic skin. Cut the head of garlic in half. Cut the tops off of the top cloves of garlic.
2. Drizzle olive oil on top of the cloves. Wrap in tin foil and bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes.
3. Squeeze garlic cloves out of the skin. Smash the garlic cloves with a fork to break them up. Mix garlic cloves, ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
4. Cut the French bread loaf in half lengthwise. Spread cheese and garlic mixture evenly over the two slices. Broil in the oven for 2 or 3 minutes just to toast the bread, watching carefully. Slice into individual servings and enjoy!
