This dish just oozes with sex appeal. Sweet figs are split to reveal their tender centers, then filled with creamy, cool ricotta cheese, drizzled with golden honey, and jeweled with a crunch of emerald pistachios. It is one of the few dishes that can bookend a meal on either side, as a luscious appetizer or dessert.

had expected more. agree with other reviewer who noted that candied pecans might make this a tastier dish.
Based on the ingredients, it should taste better than it does.If making again, I would try (candied?) pecans instead of pistachios.I found each fig could be cut in half to double the amount of pieces.
