Make a creamy condiment by stirring ricotta into a blend of hazelnuts, basil, orange zest and pecorino.



  1. Put the hazelnuts in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add the basil, garlic, orange zest and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pulse until finely chopped. Add the pecorino and pulse to combine. With the motor running, slowly stream in the olive oil and process until combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the ricotta.
