                                                         Deep Fried Ricotta Puppies

You just might want a glass of wine!

The original recipe for these was actually a dessert and I wanted to try to alter them to more of a side dish for something in the Italian nature as a compliment to spaghetti and meatballs or even lasagna. However, as my first try at these, I just had some zucchini sticks and some meatballs which I will post at another time.
I did luck out on getting an opinion other than Husband’s which made me feel pretty good! My neighbor was returning our tractor after dinner and I asked him if he liked ricotta cheese and it was a two thumbs up, so I took out some of these for him to try with some sauce I had made to dip them in, don’t think I took enough!!!
He said he loved them and that they were awesome, confirming husband who hardly ever dislikes something I make, God bless him………….Somebody’s got to! So with my husband being blessed, let’s continue with the recipe!

Asiago Cheese And Spinach Bites

Asiago Cheese Balls

Asiago Cheese Balls – Um! Husbands mistake…COM.. Not .net….Ugh!

This weekend, I played around with our Asiago cheese from Italy again. Hope you’re not getting tired of it! I wanted to make another dish with our tasty cheese and decided to make a Parmesan like hamburger steak only substituting Asiago cheese for the parm and the spinach bites with garlic bread for complimenting it. Asiago cheese is not something Kenny and I have been eating for a long time but have found it an excellent cheese to use instead of Parmesan. All was a huge success and we loved every bite leaving nary a crumb! Today I’m just going to do the recipe for the spinach as we are getting bad storms in the area and I don’t know how long my computer will be up and running.
