Very good. I messed up and put the meat sauce on top of the crust instead of cheese first, so I added some jarred sauce on top. Loved the crust bottom.

This was absolutely delicious! pasta and ricotta, two of my favorite things lol! I did make a couple of minor adjustments on amounts, and used spagettini, which is the thinner spaghetti, I did not have vermicelli handy, fresh basil and oregano is a must for this recipe! Thanks so much Ellie, we loved it!...Kitten:)
