Paesanella Fresh Ricotta

Paesanella Fresh Riccota is fresh, unripened cow's milk cheese produced by Paesanella Cheese Manufacturers in New South Wales, Australia. Ricotta word is derived from the Italian word recocta that means "recooked". Fresh Ricotta is made from whey to which a pasteurised cow's milk and salt is added.

Fresh ricotta is little grainy than cottage cheese but more smoother. It is light, flakey when cold, fluffy when warm, smooth, crumbly and moist in consistency.  It has mild sweet creamy aroma with hint of salt. The cheese is used in many Italian dishes such as Lasagna, Manicotti. It goes well with cheesecakes and dips.
