This is fantastic! There are so many different flavors going on… Creamy ricotta, tangy lemon, salty bacon… YUMM-O! I found this in Rachael Ray’s 365: No Repeats cookbook when I was looking for a recipe to use up some leftover ricotta. I used arugula instead of the Swiss chard, so use what you have. Omit the bacon (or use a vegetarian one) and use vegetable stock to make it vegetarian. This doesn’t re-heat very well, so only make as much as you need.
