Made from whey protein left over from the production of other cheeses, our ricotta has a creamy texture and sweet flavor perfect for pastries and desserts. Unlike American ricotta, Italian version is naturally sweet and similarly to mascarpone in Northern Italy, became a big part of many Italian sweets including cheesecakes and cannoli. We recommend it mixed with sugar, cinnamon, strawberries and chocolate servings as a dessert or simply served with fresh berries and a drizzle of local honey.
If you are looking for a healthier substitute for mayonnaise, try our ricotta in your tuna or egg salad or adding it to your ravioli, lasagne and even pizza.
Our ricotta is made from local organic milk and is available in 16 oz and 32 oz size.
