I had some ricotta left over from the Cannelloni I made at the weekend and after asking my followers on Facebook and Twitter for recipe suggestions (always better and more entertaining than looking through recipe books), I concocted this beaut of a recipe. The ricotta gives it a wonderful lightness, although thanks to the chorizo's meatiness you certainly feel like you've had a meal. If you didn't have any fresh thyme, you could try rosemary....or even a tsp of dried mixed herbs would be fine! Enjoy!
Whilst I have got your attention I may as well also gently remind you that voting in the Mad Blog Awards is open for two more weeks. Jam and Clotted Cream is one of the finalists in the category of best food blog (I'm at number 5)! Please do go and vote.
