You guys, you won’t believe how easy ricotta cheese is to make at home. It uses three simple ingredients and it’s ready in under 30 minutes. That’s it.
I found this recipe in an issue of Rachael Ray Everyday and it truly was so simple and it tastes great. Plus I love that I know exactly what’s in it, milk, buttermilk and salt, pretty simple, right?
To make the ricotta, all you do is bring the ingredients to a boil, cook it for a couple of minutes at a lower temperature, let it sit for a little while and then strain it. You’ve now made your own cheese without even breaking a sweat!
This ricotta cheese will keep in your fridge for up to 5 days and is great to use in anything you’d use store bought ricotta in. I’m thinking lasagna….
