This is an easy, colorful, yummy dish. I happen to love it....hope you will also. I've been making it for years, and don't remember where it came from.

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.
