If you're looking for a vegetarian dish that feels as full in flavour as a meat one try these super easy ricotta balls in a rich tomato based sauce. Eat them as they are, with a salad, pasta or bread. This recipe is easy to double in quantity to feed lots of people and use my quick way to make meatballs to save time rolling!
Between the two of us with a side of pasta this fed us for three nights and I loved the fact that neither of us missed meat. They've got the addition of the goodness of chopped kale or you could use spinach if you prefer. And to make things even speedier I used a small ice cream scoop to scoop the balls. They're not perfectly round but using it saved a lot of time. And you know me, I love saving time on things ;).
Speaking of balls (haha!) the other night Mr NQN and I were invited to a dinner for the launch of Fifty Shades Darker on DVD. I will admit that I read all the books and even went to the first film. It was a 6 course dinner where we were to blindfold each other and feed each other sexy food like oysters Rockerfeller with Perrier Jouet champagne and figs wrapped in prosciutto with gorgonzola. The host former Miss World Erin Holland relayed some folklore about figs.
She said that one of the sexiest things is for a man to eat figs while naked in front of a woman. Mr NQN looked at each other and had to giggle and he mimicked how he normally eats figs-one after the after barely chewing or swallowing. "Hey honey do you want to see that?" he said grinning. "No and really I'd probably be mad that you're eating all my figs," I told him, no doubt breaking the romantic moment. I think we're too infantile for that as things like balls even make us giggle.
So tell me Dear Reader, do you think that it would be sexy watching a naked man eat a fig? Would you giggle or find it sexy? Did you read or watch Fifty Shades and what did you think of it?
