Italian Rice and Ricotta Pie
I had to use up the rest of the ricotta I made so it was time to make an sweet Italian Easter pie to match the savory one, which we have almost completely devoured. The recipe I used is from the website http://www.ciaoitalia.com The only 'change' I made was to use wheatberries in place of the rice as indicated in the recipe. Otherwise the pie was made per instructions. I tasted some of the filling as I was making the pie and it is very flavorful with vanilla, orange zest, orange juice and cinnamon. I have seen some pies that add chocolate bits as well, maybe next year. Will be having some of this pie with a cup of tea later this evening.
