While performing a Google search for wheat berry recipes, I discovered a traditional Italian dish called cuccia. There are many variations, but I took the sweet approach and used ricotta cheese and almonds. This would make a wonderful dessert for any Italian feast.

3/4 c. wheat berries
1 1/2 c. ricotta cheese
1/4 c. sugar
3 T sliced almonds

Cover wheat berries with water, and simmer covered for about 2 hours. Mix ricotta cheese, sugar, and almonds in a bowl. Stir in wheat berries, and mix well.
