WOW! You’ve really gotta try this one! I've made this several times now and this is absolutely GREAT! When there are nights we want a meatless dinner, this is a go too. This time, because I didn't have ricotta cheese, I used cottage cheese and put it through a sieve. I also substituted the pine nuts for toasted walnuts. Instead of the basil leaves, I used a healthy scoop of basil pesto that I always keep in the freezer. I served it with Goat Cheese & Walnut Pizza - Recipe #3430.
