Vegetarian Ricotta-balls with Basil Tomato Sauce

This is one of the simplest recipes ever, that’s loved by everyone: by adults and children, even by vegetarians, since no meat is added.

These Ricotta balls are one of my favourite autumn comfy-food: they are soft, tasty and warm! They are very useful also for finishing leftovers and for reusing stale bread, instead of throwing them away (use gluten-free bread if you are celiac)! And, they are still delicious the day after.

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