This sounds -so- good to me!
DH won't eat ricotta, even in lasagne. :( Dude doesn't know what he's missing!

What ARE you making with that stash of fabric?

Oh this sounds good. The older kids like spinach but I doubt with ricotta. This is something that I would be the only one eating. So I better wait and make this when my mom and sister are here. Oh this would make a good addition to Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks!
