Ricotta is a creamy and slightly sweet cheese. The name "ricotta" means "cooked again" in Italian, referring to the second processing of the liquid (whey and milk) that is necessary to produce the cheese. It’s a favorite component in many Italian desserts like cheesecake and cannoli. Also used in savory dishes, such as some lasagnas, and it mixes nicely with fresh herbs and served on crackers.
