Equipment

  • Food chopper
  • Saute Pan
  • Ramekins

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray extra virgin
  • 1/4 cup fresh spinach, chopped fine
  • 2 tbsp minced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 8 oz. ricotta cheese full fat or part-skim
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheeese

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease your ramekins with olive oil.
  • Spray a saute pan with olive oil and heat to medium heat.
  • Saute chopped spinach in the saute pan until wilted.
  • In a medium bowl mix together ricotta cheese, mozzarella, parmesan, spinach, sun-dried toamtoes.
  • Divide mixture evenly among greased ramekins.
  • Top each ramekin with additional shredded mozzarella.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and slightly browned.

Notes

  • Use ramekins that hold 4-8 ounces. Ramekins that have measure lines to help you control portions.
  • Ricotta cheese can either be full fat or part-skim depending on your taste. I use part-skim to help reduce calories.
  • Make sure you grease the ramekins with oil. I use olive oil spray or olive oil infused with garlic or other herbs to enhance the flavor.
  • A food chopper will help you minced the sundried tomatoes super fine.
  • You can make baked ricotta ahead of time and either bake when you are ready to serve or reheat in the microwave or oven.
