This is a ridiculously simple recipe to fix. Great way to serve peaches or nectarines using ricotta and cinnamon. Yum-yum. July 7, 2009 issue of Woman's Day.


  1. Cut nectarines or peaches in half and remove pits.
  2. In a nonstick skillet, melt butter and 2 teaspoons sugar over medium heat. Place nectarines cut side down; cook 1 to 2 minutes until cut side of fruit is lightly caramelized.
  3. Divide among 4 plates.
  4. In a small bowl, combine ricotta, remaining 2 teaspoons sugar and the cinnamon.Spoon ricotta mixture onto nectarines.
  5. Top with a drizzle of honey and a mint spring.

Very nice! As ricotta and fruit is one of the ways we like to start the day we decide to try this as a sweet breakfast instead of a dessert. The cinnamon gives the ricotta a warm rich taste that is a wonderful complement to the caramelized nectarines. Made as written. Thanks so much for the post
