Five Fun Ways To Eat More Ricotta Cheese

Share with your friends

Ricotta is a soft cheese variety made from sheep, cow, or buffalo milk, which translates to “recooked” in Italian. When added to food, the fresh cheese has a rich, silken mouthfeel and a high fat content.

The creamy texture, punctuated by granules of milk solids is slightly nutty but neutral in flavour. Typically known to be used as fillings for Italian dishes like pasta shells or lasagna, ricotta has also been favoured as a topping for pizza. Interestingly enough, we picked out five fascinating ways to experience the cheese in all its glory. Read on to know more:

Pasta with a Tomato-Ricotta Sauce

A tangy tomato sauce combined with fresh ricotta, basil, and roasted garlic is the stuff of dreams, despite the fact that this may not appear all that different from other ricotta-based Italian recipes. It goes well with a glass of red wine or some crusty bread to afterwards shovel up the silky, decadent sauce. Perfect for a romantic dinner!

Ice cream with ricotta

Fresh ricotta’s semi-solid nature makes it ideal for ice cream, a rich treat. This would make any hot summer day seem like a breeze when combined with molten dark chocolate and honey that is loaded on a cone. Also berries!

Cheesecake with ricotta

Whether it maybe obvious or not, the idea of a ricotta cheesecake sounds so good, it could cure gloom in the blink of an eye. A tiny pot of seasonal berry compote of any kind to pour over the custard-y soft cake and we have ourselves a balance of the tart sharpness with it.

Ricotta Fritters

The form of ricotta fritters is synonymous with puffy, crunchy, fluffy bliss and a wonderful time. For the best World Cup snacks to share with your pals, toss them in a bowl of cinnamon sugar or season them with chives, garlic, and a hot dip.

Pancakes with ricotta

Ricotta pancakes are probably the simplest to prepare for your alone-time delight to enjoy in front of the television, whether you choose to treat yourself to a leisurely breakfast on a Saturday morning or crave a sweet treat in the middle of the night. To truly enjoy it, top it with a pat of butter, some thinly sliced strawberries, and some delectable maple syrup.
