This is pretty good. The texture was a little odd, but that was because of the pound of ricotta! Mmmmm! Also, I put the salt in the water for the noodles, because it didn't say what to do with...

Add less sugar.

excellant! also I add dabs of ricotta cheese throughout and fruit cocktail and nutmeg before baking

This was very good. I put strawberry topping on it and made it even better.
