Vegetarian Ricotta-balls with Basil Tomato Sauce

This recipe is quick, easy and effortless!

These Ricotta balls are one of my favourite comfy-food: they are soft, tasty and warm! This is a versatile recipe that can be a money-saving way to help you use up your leftovers and stale bread.

You can also use gluten-free bread if you prefer and it can be a perfect alternative for a vegetarian diet and the best thing is that ricotta balls are also delicious the day after.

For my recipe, I also used a delicious Jar of Basil Tomato Sauce with onion and a hint of basil. A nutritious sauce full of antioxidants and bursting with flavour.

You will be surprised at how tasty this simple meal can be!
