Fresh Ricotta



One of my biggest pet peeves....besides having to eat leftovers.....is......

::::::drum roll please::::::

.....having leftover ingredients! I always end up with a half a bag of this or most of a container of that because some recipes only require a smidge of the contents. I know I'm not alone in throwing out containers and tubes of cream, tomato paste, and the biggest culprit....ricotta cheese.

Most of the time, I only use it for lasagna but lately I've been spreading it on my favorite breakfast toast and sandwiches....yum!

So, now I make it in small batches.

You should too.
