Dish history

Ricotta is a typical and very versatile Italian cottage cheese: it can be eaten along with savoury dishes, be an ingredient of a savoury dish itself (e.g. pasta with ricotta, quiche..) or it can be a great dessert component! There are several Italian cakes and pastries in which ricotta plays the lead role. A couple of examples over all: Neapolitan 'pastiera', Sicilian 'cannolo' and 'sfogliatine' filled with ricotta. The dessert we suggest in this recipe a real delicacy - sweet and 100% natural and wholesome at the same time! Feel free to enjoy it.. without the guilt!
