Ricotta You might not think it, but ricotta is one of the more versatile Italian ingredients, working very well in fillings for pasta, fillings for vegetables, and also in pasta sauces and dishes such as lasagna, and that's just the savory side of the equation. It's also wonderful in cheesecakes and puddings, and if you don't feel like cooking, good fresh ricotta is very nice with a drizzle of good olive oil, salt, pepper, crusty bread, and a class of wine.

Got some ricotta and wondering what to do? Check out the ricotta recipes collection I just posted.

While we're on the subject of new things, don't miss Paccheri Pasta with Cheesy Grilled Zucchini, or Neapolitan Lasagna with Sausages. A pair of easy recipes that will work nicely as comfort foods.
