Blueberry Ricotta Beignets

< back to recipes

Floridia Ricotta is a creamy white, mild, fresh cheese with a soft texture and a slightly sweet flavour. Made the traditional Italian way, Floridia Ricotta is manufactured from the whey produced in the making of Mozzarella and Pecorino. Ricotta can be eaten as is with a little salt, pepper and fresh herbs, although it is more commonly used in Italian pasta dishes and desserts. It is delicious in salads, dips or with Prosciutto and melon. Ricotta is a favourite in Lasagna, Cannelloni, Manicotti and in all filled pastas such as Ravioli and Tortellini. As a dessert cheese, Ricotta works well with honey, fruit, or chocolate as in Cannoli, and makes an excellent low-fat addition to cheesecake recipes.
