Did you know that Ricotta is an Italian whey cow cheese made from left overs from the production of cheese. Ricotta, literally meaning "recooked" is one of the most versatile cheeses for Italian cooking — you can bake with it, mix it into a pasta sauce, layered in a lasagne or make desserts! You name it, ricotta could be used for it.
