It could be as simple as adding ricotta to your morning toast, or try these recipe ideas.
7 ways to use ricotta
Pasta is a quick and easy family meal, great for weeknights. With Perfect Italiano’s new Ricotta Pasta Stir Through, it’s as simple as stirring through cooked pasta to heat up for a quick and healthy dinner.
Add it to your lasagne
Try using ricotta instead of béchamel sauce in your lasagne. This lighter option is great for those looking for a hearty, creamy meal without the guilt.
Use it in pasta bakes
Take pasta bakes to the next level with ricotta. Ricotta’s light flavour won’t overpower other ingredients but will add a gorgeously creamy texture with a hint of cheesiness.
Try it in veggie fritters
Ricotta works as a great binding ingredient in fritters. We especially think corn fritters and ricotta are the perfect combo.
Use ricotta in desserts
For a match made in heaven, combine ricotta with berries in your favourite sweet bakes and desserts.
Top off your pizza with ricotta
Just a small amount of ricotta crumbled onto your pizza will make a good pizza great. It’s the perfect way to use up those last bits of ricotta in the bottom of the tub.
Ricotta pancakes are worth getting up for! Simply add ricotta to pancake batter for incredibly fluffy pancakes with a custard-like middle.
