Lemon Garlic Baked Ricotta

Nagi of RecipeTinEats sure develops some delicious recipes.  I don't like Baked Ricotta as it is often too bland.  This dish has  real Zing. I have converted the recipe to TMX and made 1/2 the original with a couple of small changes.
It is vegetarian, gluten and egg free.
Serves 4 to 6, although my DD declared it delicious and ate 1/2.
Set oven at 180 C


250g full fat fresh ricotta, could make your own in TMX.
1 Tablespoon cream
zest of 1/2 a large lemon
1 medium clove of garlic.
pinch of salt
good grind of pepper
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
Topping of choice, Antipasto, (as in Photo), tomato, red onion and parsley or chopped fresh herbs.


Drop garlic and zest onto spinning blades at speed 7. Scrape down.
Add oil, cream, ricotta and salt and pepper. Mix at speed 7 for 10 seconds.
Scrape down and mix again , speed 7 for 10 seconds.
Scrape onto an oiled oven proof dish. smooth out.
Bake for 15 minutes in centre of oven.
Shift rack up to near grill and grill for 5 minutes to lightly brown the top.
Serve warm with topping and garlic bread.
