Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups ricotta
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pinch of Italian seasoning
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Bread sticks to serve


  1. In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer with a whisk attachment and whip the cream cheese until smooth. Add the milk and ricotta and whip for 4-5 minutes until the cheeses are light and fluffy.
  2. Spread your cheese mixture on a plate or platter to help maximize the surface area for flavorful toppings. You'll notice I didn't give specific measurements for any of the toppings. You should really go by feel. It depends on the size of your dish. Zest your lemon over the top, sprinkle the whole thing with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper flakes (or really anything you like) then drizzle the whole thing with your most flavorful olive oil.
  3. Serve this up with some crunchy bread sticks.
