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!

Does the recipe involve any sort of seasoning (salt/pepper) ? The recipe given does not specify it.

Thanks for your question. The goat's cheese adds saltiness so we have not added additional seasoning to the recipe.
