Here are 2 new sauces that go together. I made a mini meatball pizza and used the ricotta on the bottom and the roasted pepper on top of that. It was really good, but think next time I will put a tomato sauce on the ricotta and the roasted pepper sauce on top of the pizza. YUM

Herbed Ricotta

Yields: About 1 1/2 cups

1 1/2 cups whole-milk ricotta cheese

1/2 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon salt (I didn't use)


Make the Herbed Ricotta: In a large bowl, combine ricotta with the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate the mixture, covered, until ready to use for up to 2 days.


Roasted-Pepper Sauce

Yields: 2 cups

3 orange or yellow bell peppers (I used both)

3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2/3 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon fresh sage, coarsely chopped (about 3 leaves)


Make the sauce: Preheat oven to 400 F. Place whole peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast for 35 minutes. Allow the peppers to cool, peel and seed, and place in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and pulse until chunky. Store refrigerated for up to 2 days.
