Baked Ricotta is a cheese made with cow’s milk, buffalo’s milk, goat’s milk and sheep’s milk. But we used sheep’s milk to make this product for a more refined cheese. Baked Ricotta is a moist fresh Italian cheese that is used in different Italian dishes including cheesecake, manicotti and lasagne.
Following the removal of the curd from the milk, the remaining is reheated to form a new curd that becomes ricotta cheese. After ricotta cheese is formed, it is placed in terracotta bowls and baked at high temperature for some hours. The baking process makes the cheese soft and light in texture.
This cheese can be consumed alone as an appetizer or paired with rustic dishes with salami and olives. Baked Ricotta is not only soft in the mouth; it is also sweet, digestible and satisfying. Whether you are at work, home or hosting a party, you can make this cheese your companion all the time.
