½ cup Sicilian olives, crushed and pips removed

Turn the heat to low then add in the olives, capers and parsley, followed by the olive oil.
Stir in the lemon zest and juice and allow all the flavours to infuse for 10 minutes over the low heat.
Meanwhile, spread the ricotta on a plate.
Pour over the olive oil mixture and top with almonds.
