Herbed Ricotta and Asparagus Wraps

Tortilla wrapAsparagusTortillaWrap - ingredients

This morning I had a craving for tortilla and ricotta, so I made a homemade asparagus and herbed ricotta wrap. I quickly prepared the dough and while it was resting, I prepared a creamy dill and ricotta spread and some garlicky sautéed asparagus, since it’s its season. Long story short, in about 40 minutes I had 9 gorgeous tortillas (they should have been 8 but math isn’t my strong point, apparently).

  • 250g ricotta

Place one tortilla on a plate and spread with herbed ricotta cream. Top with sautéed asparagus and any vegetable of your choice (I used cherry tomatoes and bell peppers). Roll up firmly and enjoy!
