Ricotta day 2: Frozen tart. It has been a HOT summer, thank you global warming. In an effort to beat the heat and use up some of my delicious ricotta I created this recipe for a frozen tart. In the post bellow (also linked here) check out information on how ricotta can compliment your diet. This tart is big on flavor, ricotta is like a blank pallet- it takes beautifully to most all flavors, and showcases the flavor over its self. Ricotta is pretty selfless, it only wants to enhance its flavor friends. Such an attractive quality. The frozen aspect is unique, yet oh so necessary. It completes this tart, marking it smooth and cold, it just slips down your throat in the summer, leaving you wanting more.
Stay cool kids!
