I had some leftover ricotta cheese that I decided to make muffins with. I did a quick google search for some ideas and stumbled across this recipe for ricotta dumplings with mushroom sauce. Mushroom fiend that I am, I hit the print button within seconds!
I did end up making the muffins, but I bought more ricotta cheese so I could make this recipe. Once again, I am left with some ricotta that I will have to find a use for. I suppose I must go searching for ricotta ideas, because I don't like to waste food and if I don't cook with what remains, I might have to spoon it from the tub into my mouth.
Surprisingly, I've never actually made my own dumplings before, but my first attempt was more than encouraging. Typically, I avoid overeating at all costs, but I must admit, I stuffed myself with one more mushroom covered dumpling than I needed. This recipe comes highly recommended from Lisa's Kitchen.
