Tasty but my spinach/basil went a little brown so not quite as pretty as this picture!

Really light and fresh. The basil would come through every now and then and give an intense burst of herby flavour. The tomatos are a bit soggy so I would recommend removing the seeds before frying. Might add sweet chillis or a red pepper or something next time. Just to get a bit of heat in the background.

This was ok, but the tomatoes made it a bit soggy after it went cold

loved it. very refreshing. very moist and sweet and creamy. wonderful combination. wouldn't change anything. although i added extra ricotta. probably double of what is recommended, cos it's light (6% fat) and very tasty.

Well I got round to making this last night, it was so easy and very very tasty. I did what I said id do and added Smoked bacon, asparagus and fresh peas. I served it with Herby baby potatoes. And there is enough left for the same again tonight. I would definitely make it again.

35 minutes in a small oven is just to long. The result was a rather dry mixture. But still a good meal
