Ingredients

  1. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 12 cloves garlic, 8 smashed and peeled and 4 finely chopped
  3. 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, trimmed
  4. One 15-ounce container ricotta cheese
  5. 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling
  6. 2 pounds shrimp—peeled, deveined and chopped
  7. Salt and pepper
  8. 1 baguette, split lengthwise and quartered crosswise

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat.
  2. Cook the smashed garlic until golden, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the garlic to a food processor; reserve the olive oil.
  3. Add the parsley to the garlic in the food processor and pulse to finely chop; set aside 1/4 cup. Add the ricotta and parmesan to the food processor; pulse to combine.
  4. Preheat the oven to 500°.
  5. In the same skillet, heat the reserved olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until opaque, about 5 minutes. Stir in the reserved 1/4 cup parsley-garlic mixture.
  6. Spread the cheese mixture on the cut side of each piece of bread and arrange on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Spoon the shrimp mixture on top and sprinkle with more parmesan. Bake until the cheese is melted, 7 to 10 minutes.

Serves 4-6.
