Ricotta Pie

Ricotta Pie by molly11

We took the traditional Italian holiday dessert and brought the health benefits up a notch by adding blueberries. We also think the pie tastes better and looks more inviting. Drain the ricotta cheese if you are buying the cheese prepackaged.

I also reduced much of the…
