We all thoroughly enjoyed this dish! I made this with homemade ricotta and didn't use all the salt called for...just to lower the sodium content. I also didn't have light cream...but used 3/4 cup whipping cream and 1/4 cup 2% milk. Just lovely with the nutmeg! Thank you for sharing. I will definately be making this again!
