  • 1 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 15 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 20 to 30 crostini pieces


  • Place sun-dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until combined, about 15 seconds.
  • Spread ricotta evenly over crostini pieces and top with sun-dried tomato mixture before serving.


  • You can make the toppings ahead of time and keep them in the fridge to top the crostini last minute
  • For this recipe make sure to use fresh basil and garlic, don't substitute dried
  • The same thing with fresh garlic, substituting garlic powder will not provide optimal flavor
  • Use store-bought crostini to make this recipe easy. Plus they're the perfect size and have a great crunch. However, you could also use toasted sliced French bread.
