Ricotta Stuffed Shells & Sunday Sauce
Shopping at J. Pace & Son in Saugus Ma. One of my most favorite place to shop for Italian specialty items!
Ricotta Cookies and a glass of ice cold milk is by far one of my twins most favorite after school snacks. Every time I make a trip to Joe Pace to purchase fresh ricotta they make sure I buy enough to make a batch of their favorite cookies! Today I noticed a small container of ricotta in the refrigerator left over from our St. Joseph feast last week. I decided to surprise the kids this morning and whipped up a batch for them to enjoy for breakfast. This moist cake like textured cookie is perfect to serve with a glass of milk or cup of Cappuccino, any time of day or night…They are simply heavenly, and I can guarantee they won’t last long!
If you never tasted a Ricotta Cookie…Your Missing Out on something Big!!!!
