A lot of recipes that you’re seeing lately have been from the June issue of Cooking Light. Ben’s Aunt had brought it to the lake cabin, and I found quite a few recipes in that issue I wanted to try. This dish was under the vegetarian section. It was quite an easy recipe to make. Mostly eggs, ricotta cheese and herbs. You spread out the pizza dough in a tart pan, and layer the cheese layer on top of that. If you can’t cook, now that is a really easy recipe for you to follow, no?
I really love Cooking Light’s website, because you can look at every issue and recipe they’ve had in their magazine.There is this one recipe from that magazine that looks so good, it’s called Golden Peach Soup with Crab and Shrimp Ceviche. I plan on having that on my blog sometime soon, but probably not until Shrimp goes on sale again. 🙂Print
