Ricotta Banana Nut Bread

I made lasagna for dinner recently and there was a container of ricotta cheese in my fridge needing to be used.  Remembering this recipe on one of my Pinterest boards, it sounded delicious and an excellent use of the ricotta.  I always pick sweet over savory and I just can’t help myself.

It was a typical banana bread recipe with a few twists.  The ricotta made the wet ingredients very creamy which was a good thing.  Also, I have never made banana bread without mashing the bananas.  This recipe called for chopping them.  It made for great banana flavor.  

The only change I made was to use pecans instead of walnuts, because that is what I had in my pantry.  I also broke in my new williams-sonoma loaf pan which made it very pretty before cutting.

Have a great weekend - maybe with this banana bread and your morning coffee :-)
