It is national grilled cheese month! Looks great. This looks amazing! Now I know what to do with my leftover mix.
Made this the other day. I’d never had a grilled cherse with ricotta before. It was delicious! I used fresh spinach and Heidelberg bread cuz that’s what I had on hand. Will definitely make again.
