Ingredients

Cheese dip:

  • 6 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ounce One 15- container ricotta cheese
  • ounce One 8- bag shredded mozzarella cheese 2 cups
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • teaspoon scant 1/2 kosher salt

Tomato basil topping:

  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced
  • 8 leaves basil torn or chopped
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • Toasted baguette for dipping (see note)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Thoroughly combine all cheeses and salt. Transfer to a greased oven proof dish (I used a 7-inch cast iron skillet) and place in the oven. Cook for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is light golden brown and bubbling.
  • While the cheese is in the oven, prepare the tomatoes. Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Once the cheese comes out of the oven, top with tomatoes, and serve immediately.

Notes

You can serve this dip with crackers, bread, or veggies for dipping. I like it best served it with a toasted baguette. I sliced a bageutte, brushed both sides of each slice with olive oil, sprinkled with kosher salt, and baked at 375°F for 10 minutes, until toasted.
