I served this at Thanksgiving dinner to my vegetarian son who loved it. I used fresh ricotta cheese which is heavenly as was the white sauce. The next night I served it again with red sauce and it was fantastic!. It was easy to prepare and looked so pretty. Thanks for a great recipe. It is a keeper!!
