Baked Herb Ricotta

This baked ricotta can be eaten hot, warm or cold and is a delicious addition to an antipasto platter. It also makes a fabulous vegetarian first course – make in a larger ramekin and serve spoonfuls with a few mixed leaves on the side, alternatively cook in ½ cup ramekins. If using different sized dishes the cooking may need to be adjusted.
