Excellent! I needed to make something quick for a crowd, so I used a large loaf of French bread. I also used Smoked Mozzarella cheese because I had it available. I added some chopped Kalamata olives to the Ricotta because I use olives whenever I can (I just love them). Of course, I had to increase the amount of ingredients due to the type of bread. This was so delicious, simple and quick to make. This is definitely a new favorite. Thanks for sharing and congratulations on the birth of you new little one.
