The first day of spring calls for something fresh and green (but still kid-friendly!), like this pesto-ricotta pizza. Use the leftover ricotta in sweet sandwiches for tomorrow's lunch.
Midweek pizza night? It's super-easy and ready in less than 30 minutes, thanks to this recipe from celeb chef Giada De Laurentiis. The secret: a creamy pesto-ricotta sauce and store-bought dough.
If you have any ricotta left over, spread it on whole-wheat bread and drizzle with honey for a sweet sandwich that's a little different from the usual lunchbox fare.
