MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2014

"Flavor is excellent! I added a little more buffalo sauce to it the second time - didn't think it had enough liquid the first time around. I'm not a huge fan of bleu cheese and felt the flavor was too strong for me so I reduced that the second time and liked it better. Overall, this is a great recipe!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 21, 2014

"The 1st time I tried this recipe, I used the recommended amount of blue cheese and all I could taste of the finished product was blue cheese. I threw most of it away because it was nearly inedible. I tried making it a 2nd time, and left out the blue cheese altogether. I mixed a packet of ranch dip powder into the ricotta, and the end result was rather nice. Mild flavors, with the spicy zing of buffalo sauce. If I make it again, I'll use more celery in the sauce."

"My family and friends love it. Thanks for sharing!

If its too hot, but you enjoyed otherwise, perhaps you can a use a sauce less hot ;-) we often adjust recipes to our particular taste.
Have a beautiful day!"

"After reading the reviews, I guess my expectations were too high. If I make again, I'll use less blue cheese. Sauce was very hot."
