For Roasted Garlic:
extra virgin olive oil
For Baked Ricotta:
shredded mozzarella cheese
minced lemon zest
Prepare Roasted Garlic:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Remove excess papery skin from garlic head, leaving cloves intact. Use a sharp knife to slice tops off cloves.
Drizzle garlic with oil, then rub oil over cloves. Sprinkle garlic lightly with salt.
Wrap garlic in foil, then roast for 40 to 50 minutes, or until browned and tender. Set aside to cool.
Prepare Baked Ricotta:
When garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic cloves from skins, then roughly chop.
Add garlic, ricotta, HALF the mozzarella, lemon zest, and truffle salt to a medium bowl. Mix well.
Lightly oil a medium, oven-safe skillet (or pie pan), then add ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
Bake ricotta until hot and browned around edges, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve Ricotta Dip hot with bread and veggies, such as carrots and grape tomatoes. Enjoy!
