Pea & Ricotta Spread

Posted on 20 August 2018

Amoretti Recipe: Pea and Ricotta Spread

This fresh spread is a break from the traditional hummus, baba ghanoush, and pesto. It is a great addition to a crudité platter or charcuterie board, mixed in a potato salad, makes a delicious sandwich spread, or smeared on a slice of grilled baguette with sautéed mushrooms on top (yum!).

Moreover, Pea and Ricotta Spread makes a great filling in ravioli or lasagna. It is light, refreshing, and full of fresh flavor. We like to use frozen peas, both for consistency of flavor each time we make it and the ability to make it all year long. Portioned leftovers freeze great for later use.

Everything we need to make Amoretti's Pea & Ricotta Spread recipe.

We'll start by gathering all our tools and ingredients: peas, fresh Ricotta, parmesan, garlic, Lemon Oil, Basil Oil Extract, and kosher salt. Plug in your food processor, it's blending time!

A quick blend and then it's cheese time! Freshly grated Parmesan adds great salty, savory flavor to balance the sweetness of the peas and fresh ricotta.

Finally! Basil Oil Extract and housemade Lemon Oil (you've still got some left, right?) finish off this delicious party of flavor-osity.

One final blend, until the spread is as smooth as you'd like. One of our favorite ways to enjoy Pea & Ricotta Spread is smeared over a baguette slice and topped with ribbons of salty prosciutto, yum!
