Very tasty. I used a good pinch of peperoncino piccante which gave it an excellent kick. Didn't have ricotta, used parmesan. Had a tomato salad on the side. It was delish and filling

Lovely cold for lunch, will make again and again. Don't always want food which will blast your tastebuds, nicely balanced, subtle flavours. Mmmmm!

Even with plenty of seasoning I found this very bland, will not be making this again

Not too bad with some seasoning but I think it's still missing something. I will make next time with peppers or mushrooms.
