1 cup low fat or nonfat ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons sundried tomato pesto
5-6 leaves basil, thinly chopped
Salt and pepper
4 pitas, cut into pizza triangle shapes, regular or whole wheat
Cooking spray, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)-flavored
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
3 carrots, cut into long sticks
3 ribs celery, cut into long strips
1/2 head cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 head broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, pesto and basil. Season with a little salt and pepper and set aside while you make the pitas.
Spray the pitas with cooking spray and season them with the garlic powder and oregano.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake until crispy, about 5-6 minutes. Serve the ricotta pizza dip with the veggies and pita chips. Yum-o!
