Ricotta Parmesan Garlic Bread

Sometimes you need to indulge a little and this bread is exactly that! This was a HUGE hit with my family – even my picky kids. I guess if you spread cheese – even cheese they don’t like – over bread, they’ll love it. It makes for a great appetizer or compliments an Italian dinner. I’m planning to make it for my next wine tasting! I have the perfect wine to pair with it!

Ricotta Parmesan Garlic Bread | Join Us, Pull up a Chair
1 loaf French bread
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
fresh parsley and basil, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice bread in half. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, butter, mayo, garlic powder and Italian seasoning until smooth. Mix in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Spread the mixture evenly over both pieces of the bread. Bake for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese over the top of the bread. Broil for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and basil. Slice and serve!
