Ciao! I wanted to share a quick recipe that you can whip up in no time at all.  It’s creamy, salty and beautiful.   

 

The Ricotta we have in Italy (as is everything!) is fantastic.  I encourage you, as I always do with my clients, to buy the best ricotta you can find.  If you can find it made with Italian milk, that will always be the best!
