Brushetta with Ricotta-Lemon

The bruschetta originated in Tuscany. The term "bruscato" means, roasted, or charred, roasted in the oven or on the grill. The original bruschetta had only extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper, then it was rubbed with fresh garlic. Worldwide there are dozens of toppings that can be used on bruschetta.  This recipe is an original because of the simple use of good quality ricotta, zest of fresh lemon, and fresh basil. What could be better than this rrefreshing bruschetta with a drizzle of olive oil?    Chef Alba
