Peas with Ricotta and Mint on Grilled Crostini

Perfect for a warm weather light dinner, lunch or first course. The sweet English peas and creamy ricotta all piled high on a crostini are a treat for the eye and mouth. This is kind of a spring-time open faced grilled cheese. YUM!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place the blanched and shocked peas in a medium mixing bowl. Mash the peas with a fork until they are broken up a bit. You still want to see whole peas. Add the ricotta, lemon zest, extra virgin olive oil and mint. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a grill to medium high or grill pan. Brush the crostini pieces generously with olive oil and season with salt. Grill the bread on both sides. Rub the bread with the garlic until the bread is fragrant.
  3. Pile the ricotta mixture on the bread and return to the grill to gently heat for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Garnish with additional mint and serve.
