"If desired, top with a sprinkling of chopped, candied fruits and nuts. Use any other pastina in place of the ditalini." — shirleyo

Delicious! My husband loved it! If I could give it 4.5 stars I would (with the modifications below). The pastini (I used ditalini) suprisingly gave this custardy cake a unique texture, almost like there were tapioca balls in it. There was even a syrupy-like consistency on the bottom, making it extra tasty.
Here are a few modifications I made:
-Added 1 grated tangerine peel (about 1 tsp.)
-Added 2 capfuls of whisky. I'm sure any tasty alcohol would work - perhaps Bailey's or Grand Mariner.
As a previous reviewer noted, I reduced the baking time to about 1 hour and 40 minutes. It came out just right. It may be a good idea to check in increments of 10-15 minutes after the hour mark - depending on your oven.
Thanks so much for this delightful recipe! Great way to use up ricotta and very easy too!
I THINK I BAKED IT LONGER THAN I SHOULD. IT WAS A LITTLE HARD, BUT VERY TASTY. I WILL TRY AGAIN. THANKS
