This was great but next time I will use the firm ricotta cheese and the parm. I had asiago cheese and loose ricotta so I just mixed it all together and formed a ball which spread during cooking but was still great. It didn't say how much salt and pepper so I used the measurement of the chili flakes and my friends thought it was too peppery but I LOVE PEPPER and that is what counts most. Next time I'll do it to taste.
