2 tbsp. honey

In a mixing bowl, mix all ingredients until consistent. Fill into a pie tin. Bake at 425°F until cohesive and melty, about 10–15 minutes.

Tub ricotta is very moist. So if you desire a less moist product and possibly a little bit of toasting, squeeze the extra moisture out of ricotta before preparing. Serve hot or cold. Serve with crusty bread.
