Baked Ricotta {gluten free + vegetarian}

It takes five minutes to throw together this Baked Ricotta dinner recipe.  It is an easy weeknight dinner that you could serve along side a big salad, but it is definitely decadent enough to impress friends or family over the weekend.

It has been a typical spring week here with lots and lots of rain.  I am ready for some sunshine and time out in the garden.  Until I can get out there I have been playing in the kitchen.  I  have been wanting to broaden my weeknight dinner recipe repertoire.

For me a weeknight dinner should be quick to prepare, and not cause a sink full of dirty dishes.  It also has to be a recipe that the whole family will eat.

This baked ricotta is SIMPLE to prepare only a few minutes.  It went perfect with a big spinach and bacon salad that I made, and was a huge hit with the gang. There was no leftovers, so I know it was a hit.

This recipe is great on its own, but you could also serve it as a side with steak, or even at brunch.  I am kind of wishing I had made it for our Easter brunch.   Next year, it is going on the menu.
