  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta
  • Heaping 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons peppercorns (pink/black/rainbow)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 12 Tablespoon heavy cream *optional


  1. Place the peppercorns in a plastic bag, remove the air, and crush with a mallet. Alternatively, you can crush them in a mortar and pestle. *You’ll want to leave some bigger pieces for texture.
  2. To a food processor, add in the ricotta, cheese, seasonings, and crushed peppercorns. Process until smooth and combined. To thin it out, feel free to add in some heavy cream. I do not thin it out.
  3. Transfer to a serving dish and refrigerate any leftovers.
