Pepperoni Pizza Party Dip

Time: 5 min prep + 30 minutes baking
Yield: 3 cups
Recipe from Heather Peterson and Paula Bowers

1 C ricotta cheese
1 C sour cream
1 1/4 C mozzarella cheese, grated
1 (.6 ounce) package Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix
1/2 (5 ounce) bag of mini pepperoni (or about 1/2 C chopped pepperoni)

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Grab yourself some Ricotta cheese and dump 1 cup of it into a medium-sized mixing bowl.

3. Add 1 cup sour cream and 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese.

4. Grab one .6 ounce package of Good Seasons Zesty Italian Salad Dressing Mix. This is the box you will look for at your local grocery store. Pour one package of the mix into your mixing bowl.

5. Find yourself some mini pepperoni. I love these little minis...perfect for the dip we are making today, as well as this killer Pepperoni Pasta Salad I adore. If you can't find these minis, don't sweat it. Just chop up about 1/2 cup of pepperoni and you will be all set. Add about half of a 5 ounce bag to the mixing bowl. Stir everything well to combine.

6. Spread the dip into a small casserole dish. Mine was a very small 7x7 inch pan, but you could use 8x8 or a 9x9 as well.

7. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese over the top.

8. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Serve warm from the oven with a sliced baguette or little slices of french bread.
