  • Summary

    Adapted from A Voce via The New York Times Notes: Use this recipe as a guide. I had made fresh ricotta and so did not use any milk, so based on the texture of the ricotta you make or buy, use your judgement re using milk — you might not need any either. Also, I loved the flavor of the fresh thyme, but use whatever herbs you like best or have on hand.

    Ingredients

    • About 8 slices (about 3/4-inch thick) crusty bread
    • Extra virgin olive oil to taste
    • Kosher or table salt, to taste
    • 2 cups fresh ricotta, recipe below
    • 1 cup whole milk (optional, see note above; I don’t use milk because homemade ricotta is so creamy on its own)
    • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt, such as Maldon
    • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or other herbs
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (or less — a sprinkling goes a long way)
    • 2 large garlic cloves, halved
