An Unusual Oatmeal Combination

I am all for a nice big bowl of steamy oatmeal on a cold day. Even though they are delicious, I sometimes like to shake up my standard peanut butter and banana or chocolate oats. This slightly unusual combination of ricotta and apricot preserves yields a thick, creamy, and delicious bowl of oatmeal.

Apricot- Ricotta Oatmeal
1 cup quick cooking oats
2 cups water
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
2-3 tbsp. apricot preserves
honey, to taste

Toast the oats in a small pot over medium heat until they are lightly browned. Add the water, bring to a boil, and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the oats have reaches your desired consistency. Stir in the ricotta and any desired honey, and then swirl the preserves around on top.
