So, what is cheese ricotta?

Cheese ricotta is a soft, creamy and slightly grainy cheese that is traditionally made from the whey of cow's milk. With origins in Italian cuisine, it has a mild, sweet flavor that makes it a versatile ingredient for both savory and sweet dishes. Its texture lends itself well to being blended with other ingredients like herbs, garlic or fruit, making it perfect for use in dips, spreads, and desserts like cannoli and cheesecake. Ricotta cheese is also a great source of protein and calcium, making it a wholesome addition to any meal or snack.
