I made this for the first time last year and I'm looking forward to making it again when my garden vegetables start producing. It was very good! The ricotta cheese gives it that extra "oomph".

Made this last night for dinner - fantastic! My husband (a huge meat-eater) couldn't even tell there was no meat in this, although, it would be easy enough to add some chicken. I did use some onion & chive cream cheese I had on hand for the first layer right on top of the crust, it added a little extra flavor & compensated because I didn't have any ricotta. A great way to use summer garden veggies.
