I'm afraid like Janey's mom I made the "cooking heavy" version of this, with the whole tub of ricotta, 3 whole eggs (one was very small) and the onions sauteed in a little butter. Used half garlic chives and half a small yellow onion cause that was what I had on hand. This was easy and quick to pair with a salad for weeknight, and I was surprised at how well it reheats - almost better the second day. I am always disappointed by the taste of canned refrigerated dough, though. I wonder if this could be made crustless, maybe in individual dishes.
