Recipe || Ricotta Cheese


noun ri·​cot·​ta | \ ri-ˈkä-tə , -ˈkȯ-\

Definition of ricotta

: a white unripened whey cheese of Italy that resembles cottage cheesealso : a similar cheese made in the U.S. from whole or skim milk

If you have ever wanted to experiment with making your own cheese, Ricotta is the perfect one to try. You only need four ingredients, all of which you probably already have in your kitchen. It will surprise you how quickly it takes to go from starting the dish to sitting down to a slice of bread topped with ricotta. YUM!

It is light and creamy and has a multitude of uses (in pasta fillings, sauces, toppings, pies, cakes, cannoli – the list goes on).

Serving temperature is your preference. We like to make as much ahead of time as possible, so we usually serve cool, but it is delicious warm, too!

Top it with fresh cracked pepper, kosher salt, and drizzle honey or olive oil for the perfect touch!
