This year’s Super Bowl is a little divisive in our house. So much so, in fact, that my husband has opted to work on Sunday. He’ll then catch some of the game at home while the kids and I head to a party. He loves the 49ers and grew up in Patriot’s country — so the playoffs were a big bummer to him. Especially when I was rooting heavily for the Seahawks (as I would any team that isn’t the 49ers — though I am actually a Raiders fan from Giants land).

But you know what isn’t divisive? This dip. If anything, it could just be the great unifier. I mean a good dip calls party goers to the table, begging to be dug into and enjoyed. And this one? It’s definitely a good dip.

Ricotta — a highly underrated cheese, if I do say so myself — is seasoned with garlic, asiago cheese and minced rosemary. A little extra asiago goes on top. Then it’s broiled until it’s hot and bubbly. It’s such a simple process that yields an unforgettable dip with sweet and savory notes. It’s a perfect contrast to salty Kettle brand Krinkle Cut Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper, which I created it to pair with.

And with only a few ingredients, it’s simple enough to whip up just before soprano Renee Fleming belts out the Star Spangled Banner. A quick and easy recipe for a game day dip? Pretty awesome.
