5 of my favorite dishes with ricotta cheese


I’ve been on a ricotta cheese kick lately.  It’s a great secret ingredient to so many meals.  And not just for dinner.  These past couple of weeks, I’ve used ricotta for these dishes:

  1. Check out these delicious pancakes.  I used blueberries instead of raspberries.  They turned out amazing!  A different kind of texture for pancakes than I’m used to, but I really enjoyed them.  I bought the lemon curd at Trader Joe’s.
  2. The second I saw this recipe in Bon Appetit, I knew I had to make it.  My omelet skills aren’t that great, but the taste was incomparable.
  3. Use ricotta as a garnish.  This dish with added tomatoes, spinach, and parmesan is my new fav!  I topped it with ricotta and chives.  Yum!
  4. Spinach lasagna – one of my husband’s and my favorite meals!  A healthy alternative to beef.
  5. On toast with sliced strawberries for a quick and nutritious breakfast.
