I'm one of those people who prefer an appetizer over a meal any day.
Give me piece of crusty french bread with a delicious topping and I'm a goner.
This appetizer is so delicious, fast, and easy.
Bruschetta with Fresh Ricotta and Spinach
For the bread:
1 loaf of french bread
For the topping:2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons yellow onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
3/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat and add the onion. Cook until the onion is soft and translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Add the spinach and toss it for 1 or 2 minutes to coat it with the butter. Transfer the spinach mixture to a bowl and let it cool to room temperature. Add the ricotta, Parmigiano, mozzarella, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Mix well.
