Ricotta Pudding - Budino Di Ricotta

Another great dessert from one of my favorite Italian celebrity chefs, Mary Ann Esposito! NOTE From Mary Ann: A budino is a pudding and this one is reminiscent of cheesecake without the crust. This is made more festive with a drizzle of melted chocolate or fruit coulis.

    Super and very authentic. My Italian husband's only complaint? Not enough of it. I wonder why it hasn't been rated. Maybe it's that some of the ingredients are listed by weight rather than volume. So to encourage people to make it: I used 2/3 C sugar, 1/2 C almonds (before grinding) and 1/4 C golden raisins. Didn't have any candied lemon peel but am going to make FrenchTart's Homemade Candied Orange and Lemon Rind recipe this week so I can make this delicious (and easy) dessert again with all it's parts. I drizzled it with a mixed berry fruit coulis. It's no wonder there's none left this morning (and there were only 2 of us last night :D Thanks Linda.
