Cooking with Ricotta
I love it. LOVE IT. and have somehow managed to never really notice or eat it before, so now I need you best recipes for ricotta. So far I know that its good on pizza and for stuffing pasta, but I will take any/every tip you have out there.
first ideas that come to mind:
- ricotta pie
and i'm sure you can find tons more here:
Oh gosh....come to think of it, I actually have never made them in brown butter! I'm sure it is heavenly, but I have only ever eaten them:
- tossed in pesto, or drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and topped with toasted pine nuts, shaved Parmesan and basil
-with a fresh, quick tomato sauce
I hope you (all) like them!
Also, is there anything ricotta is known well for pairing with? It seems like it often comes with spinach(which is good because I love spinach), a starch and red sauce, or fruit in deserts. Is there any other popular pairings? eggplant?
