Was a bit bland- needed some salt and pepper to pep it up...but came together well with bagelettes!

Made this for a hogmanay party and it was fab. Didnt have ricotta so used a combo of cream cheese and cottage cheese then blended it to get the right consistency. Served it shaped into a love heart shape on a red shiny plate.

Went down very well as a no fuss starter at a dinner party. Will make it again.

Yum! The pomegranates go very well. Worth using those big dark red ones which are a bit more sharp.

Delicious! So easy to make and looks great once you put the pomegranate seeds and chives on. My family loved it! I served it with some seeded crackers. Definitely a keeper!

Very good, easy to make and looks very impressive! Served with French stick and homemade (well breadmaker-made) tomato and parmesan bread. Will make again.

Not possible to overstate how much I love this recipe. Very easy, but still impressive. I made it into canapes for a party as well and they went down well.

Easy and can be made ahead but looks very impressive once the pomegranate seeds and chives added. Forgot to add the drizzle till it was nearly finished but everyone said the drizzle made it even bettr. Served with walnut bread.

I actually gave the recipe 5 stars but for some reason it's only showing 4 - definately worth 5!

This has to be my number 1 recipe. It takes minutes to make and tastes fantastic. If you're having a dinner party and want to impress then make this - and the best bit is that there's no cooking involved. Bargain!!!!
