Sun-Dried Tomato–Ricotta-Basil Spread

Like pasta sauce in a spread, this combo of tomato and basil is really versatile, but it tastes especially great with cured meats, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, grilled or roasted vegetables, or layered on a turkey sandwich.

This recipe was featured as part of our Sandwich Spreads photo gallery.

Instructions

  1. 1Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment and pulse 3 to 4 times.
  2. 2Add the ricotta, vinegar, a few of the basil leaves, and pepper to taste and pulse until a coarse paste forms.
