  2. Mix cheese and egg whites.
  3. Fold through herbs and seasonings.
  4. Grease deep dish or ramekins.
  5. Spoon in mixture.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil and bake 30 minutes.

  8. Turn out onto a plate to catch olive oil juices.
  9. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I added some lemon juice and topped it with my own garlic, salt and pepper roasted tomatoes and it was killer! I seem to have a gluttony for ricotta before moving back to Morocco in 4 months! Thanks for posting, love it!!
