Ingredients

  • 1 (1-pound) loaf ciabatta, cut into 1-inch wide slices
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 (15-ounce) container whole milk ricotta
  • 2 large seeded and diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon

Directions

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Squeeze lemon over the bread. Sprinkle bread with oregano and salt and pepper, to taste.

Place ricotta mixture on top of the grilled bread, garnish with basil leaves and serve.
