|Baked ricotta cheese with herbs makes a savory, slightly spongy cake – a very simple yet delicious appetizer.|
Preheat oven to 375. Wrap the cheese in the towel and squeeze out excess moisture. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the herbs.
Oil the pie plate, spread in the ricotta cheese mixture, drizzle with oil, and grind a bit of pepper over the top. Bake until golden, 45-60 minutes. Slice and serve.
