  1. If using supermarket ricotta, line a small colander or mesh sieve with several layers of paper towels.
  2. Spread the cheese over the towels and let drain until thickened and creamy, about 1 hour.
  3. Remove cheese from the colander and discard the paper towels; homestyle ricotta does not need to be drained.
  4. Combine the ricotta, herbs, salt and pepper to taste in a bowl; set aside.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  6. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet; bake, turning the slices once, until they are lightly browned and crisp, 8-10 minutes.
  7. Place the toasted bread slices on a large platter.
  8. Spread a scant 2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture over each slice; serve immediately.
