Homemade ricotta is ideal for this memorable dessert. Its firm texture makes it easy to roll into balls (store-bought ricotta tends to be softer and would need to be drained first). You can prepare and chill the ricotta balls up to six hours in advance.
Wonderful tasting and looking dessert. Like others have written, the homemade ricotta is what makes this special. I did a variation where I substituted pecans for the hazelnuts, sliced fresh peaches for the grapes, and then topped everything with a raspberry sauce.
