This recipe is nearly identical to my italian mother and grandmother's recipe. We use a full 32 oz container of ricotta, mixed with two eggs and italian seasonings, and only 12 oz of mozzarella...

I'd have to give this a five for taste, but a three for texture. The layered method has more texture where this is all stirred together in a big mish-mash. Next time I will keep the ricotta/egg...

This is good made just as the recipe lays out. I can see the versitility of this to adapt to make it a meat recipe, but you could just add some vegetables, too. To those that talk about layeri...
