Easy enough to make for an everyday breakfast but fancy enough to wow brunch guests. The recipe comes from The Crow's Nest.

This was nice. I'd advise to use a nice variety of apple though as my ones are a bit watery and flavourless so it didn't taste as good as it could have done!

I was happy to find a recipe that had ingredients in it that I had on hand. I really need to go to the store!!!! It smells so good while the apples saute and while it bakes. I think I may have over cooked my apple b/c the sauce was a little burnt. :( I added extra ricotta b/c I just like that texture and it turned out well. I had to force my 3 year old to eat it, but she took more bites than I even require. Great Fall recipe.
