White Pizza Dip

  I first heard of this dip when Neil and Lea came over for dinner. Neil mentioned that his Mom, Mary Beth, makes the best white pizza dip and immediately my ears perked up. What? White Pizza Dip???  I want the recipe!!!  And of course, being the fellow foodie that she is, Mary Beth was happy to send it to me, along with a little note.  This is clearly one of those "How can this not be good?" recipes, and it's really simple to make. Perfect for your next big party event or even just while you're home having a family movie night. 
Thanx Mary Beth!!  And thanx, Neil, for mentioning it in the first place!!!!
Hi Joey,
Neil asked me to send this to you. I can’t take credit for the white pizza dip. It comes right from Lipton – on their Savory Garlic and Herb soup mix.
It is a family favorite. Megan isn’t allowed to go to any of the high school pregame dinners without it. It’s the team’s most requested munchie.
I usually make it without the pepperoni, and I’ve also served it with the bread slices soft, and also toasted. It depends on how much prep time I have.

1 envelope Lipton Savory Herb with Garlic soup mix
1 container (16oz) sour cream
1 cup (8oz) ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped pepperoni (optional)
1 loaf Italian or French bread, sliced

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In shallow 1-quart casserole, combine soup mix, sour cream, ricotta cheese, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, if using.
Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.
Bake uncovered, 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve with bread.

The picture isn't mine, but it's so nice I just had to use it!
I hope no one minds!
