The airy plainness of Matzo crackers are their glory. I especially love using them as a vehicle for delicious layered flavors, such as this Italian version with ricotta, pesto made with walnuts, and cherry tomatoes. It is pretty enough to serve to company, yet un-fancy enough to have on your own. Very good with a crisp white wine!
"Gently warm the matzo crackers in a very low oven for a few minutes if you like."
Notes: Ricotta is Crystal Farms.
