Ricotta Cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Ladle marinara sauce over cheese. Spoon and spread ricotta cheese mixture onto crisped whole-wheat pitas. Sprinkle sundried tomatoes, olives and mushrooms. Add Parmesan cheese. Top with chopped tomato and black pepper grind. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes or until Parmesan cheese has melted.

Ricotta Cheese

In a saucepan, bring milk to a low simmer. Add vinegar, and stir gently. Turn off heat and wait for the curds and whey to separate. When the whey (water) runs clear, pour mixture into a fine mesh strainer that is positioned over a bowl. Allow to drain completely. (For a firmer cheese, continue to strain and leave for an hour in the refrigerator.) Pour drained ricotta into separate bowl. Add basil strips to ricotta. Season with a splash of extra virgin olive oil, fresh ground pepper and salt, to taste.
