Ricotta Crostini with Sautéed Nettles

Fresh, buttery ricotta is delicious spread on a sliced and toasted baguette, sprinkled with salt and olive oil. For added complexity, top the cheese with earthy, nutty, bitter greens like nettles. For the meat lovers, try topping it with our easy pancetta.

What to buy: Store-bought ricotta is fine to use here, or you can make your own.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 400°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted and crisp, about 8 minutes. Let cool.
  2. 2Lightly brush each baguette slice with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. 3Spread about a 1/4-inch layer of ricotta over each slice of bread. Season with salt and pepper and top with nettles. Drizzle the crostini with olive oil and serve.
