Equipment

  •  food processor 

Ingredients
  

  • 1 fresh French baguette (cut into ½ inch slices)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups whole milk ricotta - don't use the lower fat versions for this recipe
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon zest
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped basil
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted pistachios 
  • 3 tablespoons pure honey

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Arrange the slices of bread on a baking sheet. Spray/drizzle one side with olive oil. Flip the slices over and spray/drizzle the other side with oil.
  • Bake the bread for 5-7 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Place ricotta into a food processor. Process for about 30 seconds or until smooth and creamy.
  • Remove the blade from the machine and add salt and pepper to taste. Mix with a spoon.
  • Now, it's time to assemble the crostini. Place the whipped ricotta into a Ziploc bag. Close the top of the bag and snip the bottom corner with a scissor to create a piping bag. You can also just use a piping bag if you have one.
  • Pipe the ricotta onto the crostini and top with lemon zest, basil, pistachios and honey on top.
  • If you are serving the whipped ricotta as a dip, place the cheese into a bowl and add the lemon zest, basil, pistachios and honey on top. Serve with the crostini on the side.
