Last time I shared how easy it is to make homemade ricotta cheese.  Fresh ricotta is hard to resist on its own, but spread on toasted baguette slices and topped with strawberries, basil, and a drizzle of honey?  These bruschetta are completely irrisistible!  Once you’ve got the ricotta made, this is an easy appetizer that you can assemble in just a few minutes.  We’ve even made dinner out of these, along with some fresh fruit or veggies on the side.  Bread, cheese, and juicy summer strawberries… what more could you want?
