"Yes, 14 eggs is correct (note "Test Kitchen Approved" icon and please don't rate until you've at least tried it - thank you). The fresh grape tomatoes give this dish a lovely presentation. I used the entire 15 oz. container of ricotta. Everyone enjoyed the dish and one guest requested the recipe."
