This infused oil is a superstar! Warning: do not use the entire cup of oil on your sandwiches! You will definitely have leftover oil, and that's a good thing. I love the little kick you get from the oil over the tomatoes and cheese. I used a coarse country-style loaf for the bread to hold up against the weight of the cheese and tomato.

These ricotta and tomato sandwiches are great for lunch! I get so tired of eating out when I'm at the office, so this was a nice change from what I normally do. Also, can we talk about how amazing the oil is! Love it!
