Dry Ricotta

Part of the fresh unripened cheese family, Dry Ricotta is a firmer version of the fresh variant.

The word Ricotta means "recooked" and is made by heating the whey from another cooked cheese and combined with skim milk or standard pasteurised milk. Paesanella combines pasteurised cow's milk and whey to produce our delicious dry ricotta.

Dry Ricotta cheese is firmer than cottage cheese but grainier, is white, less moist than the fresh variety of ricotta and has a mild sweet flavour with an added hint of salt.

Dry Ricotta is a popular ingredient in many Italian pasta recipes like Ravioli and Tortellini and is suitable for use in many gourmet dessert cakes and dips.
