This is a very convenient dish. I make several at one time and freeze what I don't use for dinner. Then I just take from the freezer what I need, thaw, bake and voila!
This was a BIG hit when my in laws came for Sunday dinner. My sister in law is a vegetarian so I always try to make something to accomaodate all. This was perfect with meatballs on the side for meat lovers and garlic bread. I just made a few changes. I omitted the nutmeg and basil and opted instead for a lil Italian seasoning. I used fresh broccoli instead. I steamed it for 5 minutes in the microwave, chopped into tiny pieces, and tossed it with a pinch of garlic powder before adding it to the ricotta mixture. This dish was very tasty and very easy to make. It made a beautiful presentation. My husband has asked for it again and my daughter, who is almost 1, loved it as well. I'll be making this for my daughters first birthday party since it's perfect to assemble ahead of time and just heat on the big day. A definite keeper. - 15 Sep 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a good, easy dish to prepare. I've made it once just like the recipe and another time with a little less broccoli and some ground beef. Both turned out great! - 24 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
We have updated this recipe to fix the amount of nutmeg listed in the ingredients. It should not have been 2 teaspoons, but rather 1/4 teaspoon. We apologize for the inconvenience. - 03 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
