  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • Pat the ricotta wedge dry with paper towels and place in a baking dish.
  • Mix the herbs, garlic oil and cracked pepper in a bowl.
  • Spoon onto the ricotta and press on with a wooden spoon.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the ricotta is set.
