Italian in English: Torta di Ricotta, or Ricotta Cheesecake

By March 16, 2012

It's time to start thinking about Easter, which is celebrated in many parts of Italy with cakes that either contain ricotta or are made primarily from it. They range from quite simple to tremendously elaborate, but always manage to capture the delicacy of spring.

A few recipes in Italian: On About.Com: Other Recipes in English:
  • Ricotta Cheesecake
    A lemony, spicy version.
  • Ricotta Cheesecake
    This looks very much like a NY cheesecake, but is made with ricotta. And in fact it is a NY cheesecake, from Ferrara, A NY Espresso bar.
  • Joy Nash's Ricotta Cheesecake
    Is made from her mother's recipe, and looks very much like the Torta di Ricotta Laziale linked to above.
Today's Lenten Recipe again features rice: Alfonso's Risotto alla Marinara. Very tasty!
