Ricotta Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Mary Ann Esposito

Here is an easy but beautiful antipasto for a summer buffet using ricotta cheese and summer ripe cherry tomatoes.

Serves 8


3/4 cup ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1 teaspoon salt
2 to 3 tablespoons light cream or Half & Half
24 cherry tomatoes, washed, dried and 1/8 inch cut off the top and reserved


In a bowl combine the cheese, parsley, salt and enough of the Half & Half to make the mixture smooth and pipeable.

Transfer to a tipless pastry bag and pipe out small amounts on top of each tomato. Cover with the reserved stem tops.

Place on plate and serve at room temperature.
