Type of Milk:
The outside of baked ricotta is light brown, which comes from the cheese being baked in an oven
Very mild, toasty with a hint of sweetness. Not as creamy as regular ricotta, more of a soft-crumbly texture.
Uses and Pairings:
A light and pleasant cheese with a mild flavor suitable for breakfast or after dinner. When cooking, use roasted ricotta in place of feta or goat cheese if you want a milder flavor. Try it in a cold pasta salad with summer peas and fresh herbs.
