Delicious and simple to prepare. I made this in a spring form pan which made it simple to serve. We love the ricotta in this dish, but I agree with others that it needed a little more spice and I will do that then next time I make it. Definitely adding to our rotation.

Love this dish! Quick and easy to put together and a great make-ahead, as well. I used my own Freezer Pleaser Taco Mixture, since I had it on hand.

We had this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. After reading the reviews I added some chili seasoning mix for more flavor and used fire roasted tomatoes. I did not have any ricotta cheese so used all Mozzarella. It was delicious. Quick and easy. We will be having this again.Volunteer Field Editor

DIRECTIONS:
