Simple and delicious! I can't remember exactly which magazine I got this from--I've had the recipe for so long, but I think it was Parents, or Parenting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dry the bread in the oven for about 10 minutes, while you preheat it to 350º.
  2. Remove bread from oven.
  3. Halve garlic, and rub each half onto a slice of bread.
  4. Slice and chop zucchini and garlic (the same garlic that was used to rub bread), and steam for 15 minutes, or until very tender.
  5. Transfer to a bowl, and mash well.
  6. Add ricotta, salt and pepper, and mash well again.
  7. Spread over bread and bake 15 minutes.
  8. Note: A tasty variation is to add a bit of parmesan cheese to the mixture, maybe a bit of basil.

This came in handy on Fathers' Day. We doubled the recipe to cover French bread sliced lengthwise. Great side for foods off the grill!
