Use a mixture of white, green and wild asparagus if you can find them.
Use hen’s eggs if you can’t find duck eggs. Use up any leftover baked ricotta in salads or tomato-based pastas.
The baked ricotta can be kept covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.
A glass of gently sparkling prosecco suits the asparagus and egg perfectly.
