Ricotta Veggie Spread – this delicious spread of ricotta cheese and veggies is great served with cocktails or as an afternoon snack.

This delicious ricotta veggie spread is one of those recipes that sometimes just “happens” when you stare at the contents of your fridge and wonder what to do with ingredients you have on hand. Do you ever do that? Just start thinking of things you have in your fridge or pantry and how you could put them together to make something delicious?

Maybe it’s just me. But it’s how I’ve come up with some of the recipes we enjoy the most.

This recipe came together last Sunday afternoon a little while before The Masters coverage came on. Masters weekend is pretty sacred around our household. We both watch it from start to finish while cheering our favorites on.

It would take something pretty drastic to pull us away from the television when the Masters is being played. But wait, I’m getting off the subject…

I wanted to put together a little something to snack on for the afternoon and what I came up with was this spread. It’s quite light and the combination of veggies with the basil and touch of garlic was really delicious.

I’d easily serve this as a nibble along with cocktails or just as an afternoon snack. Try this one and let me know what you think!

How to Make Ricotta Veggie Spread

All you do is mix all your ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover the bowl and let it sit in the fridge for a while so that the flavors blend really well. Serve the spread with an assortment of crackers.

  3. I do love snack time! This would be perfect to enjoy during any sporting event on tv:-) What a fun flavor combo! Hugs, Terra

    1. Thanks, Nancy. It was one of those things I just threw together and was like, “wow, that turned out better than I thought!” It would be just as good with cream cheese or mascarpone instead of ricotta.

  6. Great timing – I was just noticing I had some ricotta in the fridge that I didn’t have a use for. Now I do!! Thank you!
