Roasted Peaches with Ricotta Filling

Submitted by: FOODIEWIFE

Introduction

I developed this recipe from a class I took at the Culinary Institute of America. I substituted low-fat ricotta cheese for marscapone and elimined a HUGE percentage of the butter by roasting the peaches in the oven, instead of in a skillet. It's a family favorite.

Ingredients

    1 ripe peach, halved and pitted
    1 tsp brown sugar, divided
    1 tsp lemon juice, divided
    1/4 tsp cinnamon, divided
    1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
    For the filling:
    1/2 cup ricotta
    1 tablespoon honey
    1/4 tsp lemon zest
    1 pinch salt
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    1/4 freshly grated nutmeg

Directions

1 Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2 Add lemon juice to each peace. Sprinkle peach halves with brown sugar and cinnamon. Place butter in the cavity of the peach. Place them cut-side-up on the prepared baking sheet. Roast until the peaches are tender, 20 to 30 minutes. If the juice on the pan begins to burn, add a little water and loosely cover the fruit with foil.
Ricotta Filling:
1 Mix ricotta, zest , extract and honey together. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in the refrigerator.
2 For a pretty presentation, spoon ricotta filling in a martini glass and top with one peach. Garnish with fresh mint.
