Balsamic-Marinated Radicchio with Fresh Ricotta and Basil

Here’s another winner from the current issue of Gourmet. It’s INSANE! We made this Balsamic-Marinated Radicchio with Ricotta and Basil last night to go with the lamb. Start it a little early because you broil the radicchio for a few minutes and then it marinates in the balsamic marinade with crushed garlic for at least an hour.

Thankfully we have leftovers. Tonight while my husband goes to a friend’s to watch the Pacquiao-Hatton fight, my sister, Tiny G and I will make pizza with last night’s radicchio and ricotta! Check back tomorrow for results…

  1. Wow! This looks fabulous. Perhaps you’d like to try some of my recipes at http://tastyfrugalquickmeals.wordpress.com/

  2. Feel free to bring the gang and the leftovers to our house for the fight! We have it too……minus your great food…

  3. Ricotta sounds like a nice touch to the radicchio. Looks delicious!
