A super-creamy rice dessert, made by baking together cooked rice, eggs, sugar, ricotta cheese, vanilla, cream and chopped pineapple. Traditionally served during Easter, but you can enjoy it any time of the year.
Wow. I really liked this one. I made 'Italian Rice Pie 2' first which I really enjoyed but it was a much simpler recipe than this. (still great) The ingredients in this pie all blend together wonderfully for a tasty, not overly sweet yet filling dessert. I suggest a splash or two of heavy cream over this pie. It's great cold as well as slightly warmed. - 27 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent dish. Pineapple could be replaced with your choice of fruit, dates, raisins, etc. - 27 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely sensational!!! This is truly addicting. Had to find use for alot of leftover ricotta and so glad I found this. Talk about comfort food. My whole family loved it. Cooked it a bit longer than an hour, no big deal. Gona hold on to this one. - 02 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
