Good ricotta is scrumptious (and higher but, it’s truly fairly easy to make at house). Add it to toast and you’ve got one scrumptious breakfast. Take it candy (peaches, pears, berries) or take it savory, like this ricotta toast with peppers.

I’ve given two choices for this recipe: tame and spicy. For those who’re not a warmth fan, discover the Jimmy Nardello peppers (or in a pinch, bell peppers). For those who like a kick, use the Fresno peppers- you gained’t be disenchanted.
