  • 1 (8 ounce) goat cheese log

  • 2 cups marinara sauce

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or sea salt

  • ¼ cup fresh basil, cut into ribbons


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Press goat cheese to fit the shape of a small baking dish, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Gently spoon marinara sauce around the border, taking care to cover the edge of goat cheese but not the middle. Sprinkle with salt.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until goat cheese is hot and soft and marinara sauce is hot and bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with basil.
