  • Ricotta spaetzle with lemon-pea pesto

    • VineTomato on November 07, 2017

      There is an inconsistency between the list of ingredients (600g ricotta) and the instructions which say add half the ricotta to the spaetzle mix (120g) and then the other half in the serving bowls (120g). I googled another recipe and decided to go with the full 600g which I think is correct. The sauce was absolutely delicious - pea pesto - this is going on regular rotation in my house with pasta!

The recipe also mentioned to serve with naan bread, but that seemed like it would be too much with rice and dumplings already in the dish.
