From Denny: Exploring travel sites sometimes yields some delicious recipes! This hefty pie enjoys three pounds of ricotta cheese. A slice of this could be an entire meal considering the protein level.
The pie includes cooked barley which gives it a nutty flavor. Barley is also great for calming the nervous system since it is chock full of B vitamins. FYI :)
The whole process is like making a cheesecake because of the spring form pan. You also lower the baking temperature a couple of times to gently lower the cooling off temperature gradually and prevent the ricotta from drying out.
What's even better is that this is a recipe meant for sitting in the fridge overnight or for a day before serving. So, it's the perfect make ahead dessert like for a holiday or special occasion.
