make sure to leave nice chunky bits of ricotta through the mix.

Green peas belong to the legume family.  They are high in fibre, protien and phytonutrients.  Containing specific antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients.

Spelt flour has more nutrients and a lower gluten content that normal wheat flour, spelt is a great inclusion in the diet. It also has a lower GI level, therefore not causing a spike in blood sugar levels like many white processed flours can.
