Simplicity itself. This fresh-tasting ricotta dip is a great vegetarian starter along with slices of carrot and breadsticks for dipping.


  1. Lightly crush the beans with a potato masher in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Fold the beans together with the chopped herbs and the ricotta, without over mixing.

  3. Trickle over the olive oil and serve.
