Mushroom Ricotta Meatballs

Mushroom Ricotta Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatballs #recipe

Adapted from Cinnamon, Spice and Everything Nice Real meatballs enhanced with creamy ricotta cheese, sharp parmesan, earthy mushrooms, a bit of spinach and some Italian seasonings, bathed in a nice marinara.

Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lasagna #stuffed #mushrooms #lowcarb #recipe

Mushrooms are such a perfect vessel to hold bits of deliciousness. I am not sure exactly where I saw this idea … it was somewhere in the blogosphere, a brilliant idea from one of the foodie ninjas that I know. Once I saw it, I just HAD to try it, and I was so pleased with […]


Spinach Ricotta Stuffed Sweet Peppers

Spinach Ricotta Stuffed Peppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cheese #stuffed #peppers #recipe

It’s been quite a while since I made those amazing Basil Goat Cheese Stuffed peppers. Those were sooo amazing, I kind of just stopped trying to top that recipe. Eventually, though, I got to thinking: why not try some other cheeses? I mean, what about Ricotta? Ricotta is such a nice cheese for stuffing things–it […]


Ricotta Dumplings with Mixed Berry Sauce #DoleRose

Ricotta Dumplings with Raspberry Strawberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #dessert #dumpling #recipe #DoleRose

It’s almost time for the New Year’s Rose Parade and although I will be freezing my butt off here at home in the chilly midwest, I’m excited to be virtually participating in this year’s event with my good friend Ally Phillips (from Ally’s Kitchen), Dole packaged foods, Finn Partners public relations agency and HQ marketing agency.

Ricotta Stuffed Tomatoes

Ricotta Stuffed Tomatoes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #tomato #recipe

Inspired by Cooking on a Budget As soon as I saw these cheese-stuffed tomatoes from Cooking on a Budget, I knew I had to try them. And today turned out to be the most opportune time for it. Today I had to drive 5 hours to retrieve my daughter. I am fortunate that her friend’s mom […]


Mexican Zucchini Lasagna

Mexican Zucchini Lasagna ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #paleo #zucchini #mexican #lasagna #recipe

I had this brilliant idea to make a Mexican-inspired lasagna using zucchini in place of the lasagna noodles. I mixed ricotta with a little cumin, oregano, cilantro, chipotle powder and Mexican cheeses. In each layer I added taco meat, bell peppers and jalapeno, black beans, sweet corn, and in place of the tomato sauce I […]


Spinach Mushroom Ravioli w/Mushroom Cream Sauce

Spinach Mushroom Ravioli with Dreamy Mushroom Cream Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #wonton #ravioli #recipe

Ricotta cheese, mushrooms, spinach, asiago cheese, pesto and herbs make a soft creamy filling for these delicate little pillows of pasta, which I topped with a super-dreamy cream sauce with cream cheese and Asiago, garlic and sauteed mushrooms. It’s a dish made in heaven for mushroom lovers. I think my best recipe creations come from […]


Zoodle Ricotta Pepperoni Pizza

Zucchini Noodle Pepperoni "Pizza" ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cheesy #veggie #zoodle #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Dinner Mom I am still working on my “eat more veggies” initiative where I’m trying to eat more veggies every day. For a while, I let veggies take over my life, but then I realized I was overdoing it … and in the process, making myself miserable. Yes, it’s good to […]


Meaty Lasagna Bolognese

Meaty Lasagna Bolognese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lasagna #recipe

A comforting meaty 4-layer lasagna with layers of herb-garlic ricotta cheese, beefy Bolognese sauce, Italian sausage, wide lasagna noodles and Italian cheeses. I’m trying another fresh attempt to get my kids to eat more home-cooked food (I have SUPER picky eaters!), so that means I need to make things that appeal to them. They both love lasagna, but […]


Ricotta Fig Crostini with Pecans

Ricotta Fig Crostini with Pecans & Gorgonzola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #fig #appetizer #recipe

Adapted from White on Rice Couple A super simple little appetizer that’s beautiful, elegant and tastes amazing. It’s perfect with a glass of wine at the end of a hard day, or to serve to guests when you have little time to prepare. It was a long day today. I woke up early and decided to […]


Zucchini Ravioli

Zucchini Ravioli ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #ricotta #cheese #gf #recipe

Slightly adapted from The Healthy Maven I’ve discovered the simplest, most elegant way to make zucchini noodles. I admit, I do have one of those spiralizer things for making zoodles and I’ve used it a few times and loved the results. I jealously watched other foodies post their gorgeous zoodle photos for years and finally […]


Red White & Blue Ricotta Galette

Red White & Blue Ricotta Galette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #4thofJuly #dessert #recipe

Happy Independence Day! I woke up early today, the sun shining on my bed at 5:30 am and I was absurdly, entirely awake. I had planned to sleep in today, but my body and the sun had other plans, apparently. There was no use lying in bed when I was so thoroughly alive and awake. […]


Tomato Basil Ricotta Soup

Tomato Basil Ricotta Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

From the number of tomato soup recipes I’m posting this year, you’d think I was a tomato soup fanatic or something. In truth, I haven’t historically even liked tomato soup at all. I used to hate it, in fact, and when my son would ask for it, I had to buy him the canned stuff […]


Tomato Aubergine Ricotta Tart

I made this recipe last summer … reposting because it got lost in the move … plus it’s nice right now to remind myself there is such a thing as summer, with all the late April snow & ice we’ve had. The beautiful colors in this post bring me cheer and hope. I dreamed of […]


Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Cream Scones

Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Cream Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #scone #recipe

Adapted from Smitten Kitchen Scrumptious blueberry scones made with whole wheat flour, ricotta cheese and fat free half & half. The top of the scones are lovely and crunchy from the turbinado sugar, and the middle is perfectly tender and moist. The berries provide delightful bits of sweet juice and the lemon, well, you just […]


Cannoli Cream-Filled Strawberries

Cannoli Cream-Filled Strawberries ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

This recipe is from Full Belly Sisters. She is the queen of creative Cannoli recipes! (Not to mention her Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich is seriously amazing.) This is another recipe we made for the International themed birthday party … when my daughter saw these beautiful berries from Full Belly Sisters, she wanted to reach right through […]


Chocolate Pistachio Cannoli Icebox Cake

Chocolate Pistachio Cannoli Icebox Cake

Is it okay to have cake for breakfast? Because I really can’t sit here and look at all this drizzly chocolate and finish this post without eating some … it’s just TOO tempting. This all started when Justine at Full Belly Sisters shared her recipe for Cannoli Ice Cream. It looked SO good! A few […]


Smoky Stuffed Pepperoni Pull Apart Rolls

Smoky Pepperoni Cheese Stuffed Pull Apart Rolls

Post #3 of 5 in my Five Favorite Things for my Five Thousand Foodie Friends series … #1 was salad. #2 was dip. #3 is BREAD! You might have noticed if you’ve hung around this blog very much that I adore making bread. There’s no better smell in a home than a loaf of fresh […]


Eggplant, Mushroom, Ricotta & Asiago Bruschetta

Eggplant Mushroom Bruschetta

My dear, dear friend brought me some of her precious rustic rosemary pepper bread … and I was SO delighted! I had seen this recipe for Eggplant Bruschetta and already had dreams of eggplant and bruschetta dancing in my mind … I just needed some rustic bread to make it happen … some days, if […]
