Last night I combined this and another recipe I can't find online to make a parfait with mango and lime layered with sweetened and vanilla-ed ricotta*, honey, and homemade granola.

I ate it for dinner, which is probably not the purpose of a parfait, not that I care.


* I rarely buy real ricotta. In most cases, I find that blended up cottage cheese substitutes just fine; it's cheaper and even more crucially,  something I'm much more likely to have on hand when the mood for a ricotta dish strikes.

That sounds like a really good recipe. I've never tried anything like it.

It's yummy and has the added benefits of being good for you. :)

I always put ricotta on toast, topped with grapes, and drizzled in honey for breakfast.

It's delicious!

How can you call yourself an Italian-food-lover?!

So do you think you'd like the blended up cottage cheese used in recipes, or is that equally ricotta-y? :)
