Ricotta Toasts + 3 Toppings

Ricotta Toasts + 3 Toppings

Sometimes I gravitate towards certain foods and I will repeatedly eat them for weeks on end.

There was a length of time when my lunch of choice was ricotta cheese and roasted red peppers wrapped in a tortilla; part wrap and part burrito. It was easy, required very few ingredients and was perfect when my school schedule was tight. Those were the days when I'd work from 9am - 1pm, bike quickly back to my apartment even though it always took 15 minutes, take Gus out, throw my lunch together, and bike back towards campus. Eating lunch before class started was the way to go and that tortilla wrap satisfied my 2pm lunch cravings. 

But this is not that wrap/sandwich. In fact, I haven't had that wrap/sandwich in over a year and a half but sometimes it will pop in my head. I'll think about that fluffy ricotta with a sprinkle of salt and freshly ground pepper and the chew of the tortilla. I remember roasting those red bell peppers and setting off the smoke alarm about 3 times in a row causing the neighbors to open their screen door and glare at me through the gate that separates our apartments. Sorry, sorry for sensitive smoke alarms!
