Directions:

  1. Toast bread slices in a toaster.
  2. Spread ricotta on bread. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil and place basil leaves on top. Sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!

Nutrition note: By using part skim ricotta as a butter substitute for bread, your adding lots of calcium and protein and cutting back on the fat and saturated fat.
