Giada De Laurentiis has saved our butts on more than one occasion when it comes to making our dinner party a success. And this new recipe is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser.

On Dec 11, De Laurentiis posted a scrumptious snapshot of one of her top-favorite appetizers to her Instagram page, @thegiadzy. She posted it with the caption, “When we’re brainstorming for an appetizer that is *always* a crowd-pleaser, this one is top of mind: bruschetta with ricotta, roasted cherry tomatoes, and a spicy Calabrian chili honey drizzled on top.”

De Laurentiis’ Ricotta Bruschetta with Sweet and Spicy Tomatoes is definitely a crowd-pleaser, and super easy to create behind-the-party scenes.

With a total time of only an hour and forty minutes, this delectable appetizer needs love and care for every part of it. From the tomatoes to the spicy honey to even the bruschetta, everything is an explosion of flavor. And not too many ingredients are needed — most can be found in your cabinets already such as olive oil, chili paste, kosher salt, and basil leaves to name a few.

This vegetarian delight needs only five steps to perfection, with a lot of it being mixing and drizzling.
