Ginger Plum Ricotta Pie

RicottaPie3It’s stone fruit season! For this recipe I decided to use up a few plums I had. I feel like plums are the most under-rated stone fruit. Peaches and cherries get all the glory (though I love those too! Recipes to come.)

If you don’t know what ricotta pie is, it’s kind of like an Italian cheesecake. This is a lightened up version using part skim ricotta and cottage cheese. Not a cottage cheese fan? No need to worry, it gets blended up to a smooth and creamy consistency before its baked and topped with sweet juicy plums and spicy ginger.
