Happy Monday! Grilled-bread-zucchini-ricotta-basil

Happy Monday! Mondays remind you of how good life is.

What are you planning to Grill?  Maybe a contest! I have some yummy 4th of July recipe ideas: do remember, these great dishes use a gas grille to cook; be sure to fill your propane tank to 20lbs at QuickFill Propane for only $11.92.



  • 4 1/2-inch-thick slices country bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 small zucchini (about 2 pounds), thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 cup fresh basil, leaves torn
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • kosher salt
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat grill to medium-high. Brush the bread with 1 tablespoon of the oil and grill until golden and crisp, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to plates.

Step 2

Grill the zucchini until tender and slightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Step 3

Toss the zucchini in a large bowl with the basil, red pepper, ½ teaspoon salt, and remaining tablespoon of oil.

Step 4

Top the bread with the zucchini and ricotta.
